- Update has hung for few months (i usually work in Linux anyhow)
- I choose to accept
- New update for version 1.9.0 is downloaded and installed, not more glitches than normal Windows installer brings
- After update I get a pop-up that this version will not be updated/maintained anymore and I can choose to ignore or get to the downloads page
- I get to downloads, I’m curious
- a new version 18.104.22.168 is downloaded, so I install it
- Installation is smooth, and I am bugged about the earlier version once again when I start the app.
Now, really? I have to update to a non-supported version first to get the latest, separate, completely new version? How smooth is this?
I was a bit surprised for Fedora not having jmeter in the repository, but then I thought I could as well do the thingy in the old way 😀
First of all, we need to get the release:
Then we need to extract it:
sudo tar -xzf apache-jmeter-3.1.tgz -C /opt/
After that, we create the symlink to the jmeter -binary:
sudo ln -s /opt/apache-jmeter-3.1/bin/jmeter /usr/local/bin/jmeter
And as last, we create a desktop shortcut:
That’s it. We’re done 😀
