    No Java SE6?
    Hi,

    I am trying to run PS3 Media server on my iMac 16" Intel, running 10.5.8.

    The app will not start, and gives a message "No compatible version of Java 1.6 available".

    I have gone to Apple tech support and downloaded Java Update 8 for 10
    .5.8, which updates Java to 1.6 and J2SE to J2SE5. It seems to install fine, but there is still only J2SE5 available in java preferences.

    I downloaded and installed soylatte, but still no SE6 or Java 1.6!

    Help! How can I get Java 1.6?

    If you open up Terminal (/Application/Utilities) and type in the following command, what do you get?
    Code:
    java -version
    This should come back with 1.6.0_22.

    I've got a reply of java version "1.6.0_03-p3". But this is only after I installed soylatte.

    What model of iMac do you have? You need at least a Core 2 Duo for Java 6 under Leopard.

    Core Duo is not a 64-bit capable processor and Java 6 requires a 64-bit processor. You're going to have to use Soylatte. I would suggest changing the symlinks but I'm not sure how that will effect the performance of other applications which may depend on the capabilities of the Apple supplied VM.

    EDIT: Found a way that may work for you. Open up terminal and execute the following:
    Code:
    java -jar /Applications/PS3\ Media\ Server.app/Contents/Resources/Java/pms.jar
    That may or may not work but it's worth a shot. That command also assumes you put the PS3 Media Server bundle in /Applications.

    Nope - didn't work. But hay - thanks for helping, and replying so many times. I am grateful for your patience and help.

    I will just use playback or an alternative like Medialink.

    Or I might get ashiny new iMAc....

    thanks again.
