hi dilip,

this is from help of SAPGUI for Java 710 rev 4 :


IBM x86 compatible PC

CPU: Intel PentiumIII with 800 MHz

RAM: 512MB


Sun Java Runtime Environment 5.0 (32-bit) or 6.0 (32-bit) including Java Plugin.

Make sure that the Java Plugin is properly installed.

C++ runtime:

This library is generally included with current distributions, at least they all have packages with gcc 4.1 which include this library. For information where to find the packages required to install, please refer to SAP Note 909250.

Supported Linux distributions:

SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10

Fedora Core 7

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5

These Distributions are tested and officially supported.

SAP tries to make sure that the SAP GUI for the Java Environment runs on other combinations as well. But please note that the solution of problems caused by the Java Runtime depends on the support of the Java vendor.

it's the official documentation from SAP.

I'm currently using SAPGUI for Java 7.10 rev 4 on OpenSuSE 11.0 on myn notebook.

The version of JRE will be dependent on the version of SAP GUI for Java that you will be installing. Do let me know about the GUI version.
