Are there any guides to getting this working? I am attempting to play Minecraft. (

I think there may be some conflicting versions of Java here.

You can get an RPM from Sun at

Once you choose the Linux RPM for your architecture, you can install it by making the file executable and running it as root. Example commands below for the 64-it version.

chmod u+x jre-6u29-linux-x64-rpm.bin && ./jre-6u29-linux-x64-rpm.bin

Then, to launch Minecraft, you can run the following in the directory where you have the minecraft.jar file

/usr/java/jre1.6.0_29/bin/java -Xmx1024M -Xms512M -cp minecraft.jar net.minecraft.LauncherFrame
