There is something wrong with the Download at the Oracle server. Does anyone have connections there to get Oracle to repair the download ? Having a known good download to begin with would be really nice. Thank You Very Much Very Sincerely CatBurgler

I would start with trying to get JMF to work on a 32-bit Linux, try this (as an unproviledged user):

su -c "yum -y install wget`
cd /tmp
wget --no-cookies --header "Cookie:"
sed -i s'/tail/tail -n/' jmf-2_1_1e-linux-i586.bin
yes yes | sh jmf-2_1_1e-linux-i586.bin  # press q to start installation

Now - install a test Fedora 32-bit machine and perform the above steps, and these additional steps:

su -c "cp -pv /tmp/JMF-2.1.1e/bin/* /usr/bin"
su -c "cp -pv /tmp/JMF-2.1.1e/lib/* /usr/lib"
