chmod a+x jre-1_5_0-linux-i586-rpm.bin


Hello again

I having a hard time installing java. I have followed any and all instructions I can find and I keep getting the same response:

[root@localhost java]# chmod a+x jre-1_5_0-linux-i586-rpm.bin
chmod: cannot access `jre-1_5_0-linux-i586-rpm.bin': No such file or directory
[root@localhost java]# chmod +x jre-1_5_0-linux-i586-rpm.bin
chmod: cannot access `jre-1_5_0-linux-i586-rpm.bin': No such file or directory
[root@localhost java]#

I have no idea what to do at this point. I have looked at all kinds of different posts and install instructions but nothing seams to help ??
I don't even know what the "chmod" command does?

Thanks for any and all help and as always, I hope the answer to my question is just as helpful to anyone else that may read this as it will be to me

Are you sure that you're in the directory where the file is? Edit: are you sure you're typing the whole file name correctly as well? The filename should be something like jre-1_5_0_04-linux-i586-rpm.bin.

The chmod command enables you to change permissions on files or directories. The permissions are read, write and execute. "chmod a+x filename" and "chmod +x filename" say to add execute permissions to that file for everyone (the owner of the file, members of the group that the file is in and everyone else). See "man chmod" and this for more info about chmod and permissions, respectively.

You shouldn't copy the file, you should make a link. There are instructions for that here.
