A couple of weeks ago, I downloaded the Java JRE for the roboRIO with no problems. I just tried again last night with our second unit, and can’t get it to work. I tried with two different laptops and two different Internet connections (at school and at home) and both last night and this morning. It comes up with a constant checksum error (see log from the installer below). The computed hash is always the same - so I don’t think it’s a problem with the downloaded file being randomly corrupted.
I didn’t write down the version from before, but it is now Java 8 Update 33 (and I’m wondering if the installer hasn’t caught up)?
This is what is available for download: ARMv5/ARMv6/ARMv7 Linux - SoftFP ABI, Little Endian3 in the file: ejdk-8u33-fcs-linux-arm-sflt.tar.gz. It also doesn’t seem to quite give the same choices as the documentation (page 179 of the WPI docs).
I can go directly to Oracle and download it, but I’m guessing there is no checksum validation as part of the direct download.
Here is the link to the release notes on Oracle:
Is anyone else having this problem? Can I just go with using the external download? Or can you tell me what I am doing wrong? Like I said, I had no problems a couple of weeks ago after kick-off.
Thanks in advance!
