I need to install GeoServer on Ubuntu 11.10 64 bit.
first, I installed Oracle Java 7 (JRE/JDK) successfully.
then, i thought i need to install JAI and ImageIO (jre and jdk amd 64-bit) from here http://download.java.net/media/jai/builds/release/1_1_3/
following these instructions : http://docs.geoserver.org/latest/en/user/production/java.html#installing-native-jai-on-linux
but that didn't work.
then tried these instructions (for JAI files) : http://java.sun.com/products/java-media/jai/INSTALL-1_1_2.html#Installation
install done but with these errors :
Cannot create lib/amd64/libmlib_jai.so
Cannot create lib/ext/jai_core.jar
Cannot create lib/ext/jai_codec.jar
Cannot create lib/ext/mlibwrapper
also when i tried to install IimageIO files i got: Please do not attempt to install this archive file
I am not sure what to do now.
maybe it is better if i use 32 bit machine instead of 64 bit ? or use openJDK instead of oracle java ? I really need your suggestions ppl.
