I'm a Solaris admin and I was asked to patch some RHEL servers. I'm having trouble trying to figure out the RHEL java version. Can someone help me?
This what I do in Solaris
This what I see on RHEL
I went to the RHEL site and looked at this page. https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/CVE-2010-4454
The issue is the version numbers don't match the layout I get from the command line. I can't figure out if my version has been patched to cover the vulnerability. In Solaris The latest update is 1.5.0_34 & 1.6.0_31 (put out in Feb), I would like to have the RHEL servers patched to the same level.
RHEL 5.x, (5)
RHEL 4.x (1)
Can someone help me understand the versioning RHEL is using.
There's more than one kind of Java. Sun servers use Sun's own java implementation, Linux servers use the open-source GNU java implementation. I'm not convinced their implementations version numbers' have anything to do with each other.
