on Ubuntu 14.04, I was able to get it to work by simply running:
sudo apt-get install default-jre
If you're running 64 bit Ubuntu and would like to install the 32 bit JIRA, this works:
sudo bash dpkg --add-architecture i386 apt-get update apt-get install default-jre:i386
The installer is bundled with a JRE, so obviously that wouldn't help. But I tried it anyway just after I posted my question and of course it didn't work. I forgot to mention that I verified the MD5 sum. Is this installer dependent upon a particular unix shell? I think I only have Bash installed right now.
~$ java -version java version "1.7.0_25" OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.3.10) (7u25-2.3.10-1ubuntu0.12.04.2) OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.7-b01, mixed mode) ~$ ./atlassian-jira-6.0.4-x32.bin Unpacking JRE ... Starting Installer ... ./atlassian-jira-6.0.4-x32.bin: 466: ./atlassian-jira-6.0.4-x32.bin: /home/me/atlassian-jira-6.0.4-x32.bin.4256.dir/jre/bin/java: not found
This is driving me mad and I have had incredibly little support from Atlassian.
As Debian no longer include an Oracle version of the JDK in the repo's you have to grab a tarball from Oracle. Good luck with that, java-package and make-jpkg have not got me far in making a debian package to install with any success. I really have persevered but I expected WAY more from Atlassian to be honest.
You need to install the JIRA software prerequisites.
Run as root:
apt-get install lsb-core apt-get install default-jdk apt-get install default-jre
Also make sure you have Oracle's Java Installed:
The Oracle JDK is the official JDK; however, it is no longer provided by Oracle as a default installation for Ubuntu.
You can still install it using apt-get. To install any version, first execute the following commands:
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer
If you're on Ubuntu, for example, then you need to make sure you have Oracle's Java installed with the above commands. It took me a couple hours then I figured this out. Hopefully you figure it out!
