java – Problems installing jdk7 or 8 on MAC OS 10.6.8 – Snow Leopard


I'm new to java, and I have a MACBook with MAC OS X 10.6.8 better known as Snow Leopard.

I'm trying to install jdk and Netbeans on it and I can't.

He tells me I need MAC OS version 10.7.

I've tried all versions of jdk 8 and 7 to no avail.

Can someone help me ?


Download jdk7-7uX-macosx-x64.dmg from the downloads portion of the Oracle website.

Use Pacifist to open and install JDK 7 Update X.pkg from the file you downloaded.
