IDEA not recognising newer version of JDK in Linux Follow
I was getting an error message "Wrong version of JDK. You have 1.4.1_01. You need 1.4.1_02" when trying to run IDEA.
So I have upgraded my machine from JDK 1.4.1_01 to Sun JDK 1.4.2, using the RPM installer in SuSe. However I still get the same error mesage when I run IDEA.
I tried rebooting but that didn't help.
What do I have to do to get IDEA to recognise the newer JDK under Linux?

Normally, IDEA comes with its own JRE. Try downloading the latest JRE pack from the EAP site.
Oh OK. I had assumed they were two different issues; JDK vs JRE.
I figured it out. I had downloaded the correct JRE but had installed the old one (from Ariadna) instead. Silly me!
Thanks for your help.
btw This error message is very misleading; if it had said "You do not have the latest version of the IntelliJ JRE" I would have understood straight away.
