    Hi all! I have been looking for this file for a while: java-6-dp9.dmg
    Does anybody have that? That contains the PPC Java SE 6 for Leopard. Thanks!

    I'm afraid Java support for PowerPC ended quite some time ago so all our G5's and below are stuck running an old version of Java 5 I'm afraid. No modern minecraft for you! :p

    Here is DP8. Don't lose it - it took me a long time to find it! I never could find the DP9 though.

    My G4 is currently out of action, so it's untested. Please report back with your findings.

    Possible install method:

    Yes you can! :D

    It's a Tekkit Lite server and the address is:

    snovia.nanotekkit.us

    Feel free to have a look around!

    That's just a link to Apple's Java for Leopard 8 Update. Here's the latest 10 update: https://support.apple.com/kb/dl1359

    Why don't you switch to FeedTheBeast, which is just like tekkit, but has permission from the modders, and industrial craft.

    I haven't read up on feed the beast. You mean an integrated perms system? That interests me because having to use MCPC or BukkitForge is a nightmare but I need it to bring in my BukkitForge plugins, most importantly worldedit and PEX.

    Dear lord, a file which doesn't get lost when the server goes offline - the horrors. If more files were available as torrents then we wouldn't be in this mess in the first place.

    Soylatte is a build of OpenJDK 6 (has possible been updated to 7?) for PowerPC. I haven't tested it thoroughly, but it's incompatible with some things due to various missing components (odd, because OpenJDK 6 on Linux works just fine). It might be worth giving it another shot though.

    Sorry for bumping this thread, but the torrent your provided seems to be dead. If you still have the file, can you reupload it?

    Thanks, now it's downloading at 50-100 kb/s. Hope that the file will be ready when I wake up tomorrow

    The torrent is just Apple's Java Update 8 for Leopard. See my previous post to download the latest Update 10. If you still want the Update 8, you can download it from Apple's site.

    First of all, you linked Update 10. Furthermore, the description explicitely states that it will update Java 6 only on 64-bit intel Macs.

    I'm a bit confused here. Installing Update 10, will it remove the old Java 6 for PowerPC? :confused: Do I need to install Update 8 before installing Update 10? :confused:

    I know I linked to Update 10, that what my post and my quoted say. The description may say that, but it's no different that Update 8.

    I installed the update. But java6 won't show.

    I tried launching "Java Preferences". Only 1.5.0 and 1.4.1 show up.

    Then I did the following:
    Code:
    # java -show-version
    java version "1.5.0_26"
    Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_26-b03-376-9M3263)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_26-156, mixed mode)
    
    # which java
    /usr/bin/java
    
    # ls /usr/bin/java
    /usr/bin/java -> /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/Current/Commands/jav
    
    # ls /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/Current
    System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/Current -> A
    
    # ls /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/CurrentJDK
    /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/CurrentJDK -> 1.6
    
    # /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/CurrentJDK/Commands/java -show-version
    bash: /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/CurrentJDK/Commands/java: Bad CPU type in executable
    
    What am I doing wrong? :confused:
