The program manager for this release replies: Java 6 Update 15 has Linux bundles and supports Linuces. The list of supported OSes is available on http://java.sun.com/javase/6/webnotes/install/system-configurations.html .

Note that linux distros which use the jdk-distros project will make 'native' packages available too.

Thanks a lot GD. The link you sent me was quite helpful.

The most recent version posted on SUN Micro is version 1.6.0 update 15 build 3.
JAVA 6 UPDATE 16 When run on a VISTA SP2 PC, it will error and exit without installing.

The error returned follows...
"Error 1330.A file that is required cannot be installed because the cabinet file jre1.6.0_15 Data1.cab has an invalid signature. This may indicate that the cabinet file is corrupt."

Is there a fix for this?

Alberto: I have notified the program manager for this release but have received no answer. Please post your question on one of the Java Forums, http://forums.sun.com/index.jspa , or try one of the options at http://bugreport.sun.com/bugreport/ .

I am having the same problem as Alberto on Windows 2003 Server. The interesting thing is that someone else with the same permissions can install, however, I cannot. This post here ( http://forums.sun.com/thread.jspa?threadID=5402704 ) mentions that it has something to do with a missing root certificate, but does not post procedures on how to get the certificate or add it to the list of root certificates. Has there been any progress on this? Has a bug report been submitted?

Phil, to check on the status of a bug report, go to http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/ . If you'd like someone to post those procedures on http://forums.sun.com/thread.jspa?threadID=5402704 , please add such a request to that thread. The forums are where Sun engineers look for user questions and input.
