I don't know for certain, but since the FamilySearch indexing development efforts are heavily focused on the new browser-based indexing application, it's understandable that the obsolescent Java-based indexing application would be rather neglected.

Why not give the chance to the lds community to contribute?
If the pioneers have build a shared irrigation system we can do it even for technology, isn't. :D

The Java-based system is going away. It would take significant effort to set up the project for community involvement, which would be just as much of an effort as fixing things. I doubt that the development managers at FamilySearch would welcome that distraction at this point.

The pioneers lived in a simpler time. Also, a mistake in a irrigation system wasn't likely to mess up things around the world.

It sure could mess up things in the entire world in which the pioneers lived, however. [grin]

True, but it goes back to the old saying "to really mess things up takes a computer".

Hello. What about RPM distros? I'm running Fedora 24 x64 here, and I get this message:

[rei@dhcppc7 ~]$ rm .install4j
[rei@dhcppc7 ~]$ sh Indexing_unix.sh

You can also try to delete the JVM cache file /home/rei/.install4j

As you can see, it want version 1.6 ONLY of JVM and you have 1.8. bla, bla, bla.

Yes, I can see, and there is no 1.6 in repositories, so I'd like some guidance on what to do next. Of course, getting 1.6 is next. I need help on that. Maybe compile?

I can confirm that the steps listed in the Installation Instructions section of that askubuntu page should be distro-agnostic. I had to do similar when getting it set up on my fresh PCLinuxOS install which only has Java 8 in the repos (which I did rather blindly, but knowing that newer versions of the java runtime are backwards-compatible, took a bit of finagling to get the install script updated though. knowing about the patch would have saved me quite a bit of time and effort).
