Angry Installing j2re-1_4_2_04-linux-i586.rpm


when trying to install this rpm using either of these commands:

rpm -ivv j2re-1_4_2_04-linux-i586.rpm

or

rpm -Uvv j2re-1_4_2_04-linux-i586.rpm

-------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm getting the following error:

package j2re-1.4.2_04-fcs is already installed
-------------------------------------------------------------------

When I try doing a search for this package/rpm in both

/var/lib/rpm or /usr/java (this one is completely blank/empty)


---------------------------------

Can someone please help me? I've only been using Linux for about a week now since I'm converting from Windoze and starting to study for my redhad cert.

it says its already installed. why do u try to install it again? have u deleted something?

u can try to update "rpm -Fvh j2re-1_4_2_04-linux-i586.rpm"
u can try uninstall "rpm -e j2re-1.4.2_04-fcs" and then install "rpm -ivh j2re-1_4_2_04-linux-i586.rpm"

Exclamation Ok, apparently, I wasn't clear enough!

This is the error that I'm getting after having tried "refreshing (-F), installing (-i), updated/upgrading (-U) and even using the force (--force) on both the install command (-ivv --force) or the upgrade command (-Uvv --force).

When I'm at a shell/command prompt and I type "java" or "whereis java", this is what I get:

[root@KirbyOne root]# java
bash: java: command not found
[root@KirbyOne root]# whereis java
java:
[root@KirbyOne root]#


What am I missing?

could your path not be set. cd to /usr/java/jre..../bin. then try running ./java. if this works then edit your ~./.bash_profile. add :/usr/java/jre.../bin to the path line and relogin.

The original poster is correct this does not work having downloaded from the sun site, this said it was a Redhat RPM. I have never been able to get java working on 9.2 nor 10.0

I nemember on RH this file came up with a copyright notice first before it unpacked the rpm. This doesn't happen with this file. If I use a terminal rpm i command it says it is not an rpm package.

Where can I get a mandrake rpm for this to work, or does it not work with 10.0 yet?

you just install it by this command
rpm -Uvh j2re-1_4_2_04-linux-i586.rpm --force
and then , you can find the directory under /usr/java, you can move it to /usr/lib or anywhere you want to.
finally , paste this below into /etc/profile

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/java
export JRE_HOME=/usr/lib/java
export CLASSPATH=/usr/lib/java/bin
export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH

because mine is under /usr/lib , so you just change it refer to yours.

Angry What NOW?

Ok, when trying to "force" the rpm installation per instructions of the last post: this is where it seems to "hang" on the install everytime.

All it does is SIT here, for over 3 hours......

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[root@KirbyOne root]# cd /tmp/JavaStuff
[root@KirbyOne JavaStuff]# rpm -Uvvh j2re-1_4_2_04-linux-i586.rpm --force

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Any suggestions? I'm really getting frustrated as I still can't seem to get Java installed.

Mira Paisano: unistall/remove/erase the package you downloaded.
→→→Running RH9:
1.-Download the Java 2 Runtime Env. package from java.sun.com/download (Look for a Java 2 Platform, std edition that runs on Linux, then download the Java 2 R.E. package. I used j2re-1_4_03-linux-i586-rpm.bin )
2.-Make the package executable and execute it to extract the RPM, as follows:
# chmod 755 j2re*-rpm.bin
# ./j2re*-rpm.bin
3.-Install the j2re3 package (as root user), just as you would any software RPM package:
# rpm -iv j2re*rpm
4.-Change the java plug-in directory and create a link from the java plug-in to the Mozilla/Opera plug-ins directory. (Instead of * , you could type the whole j2re directory name.)
$ cd /usr/java/j2re*/plugin/i386/ns610/
$ cp libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
5.-Close any open Mozilla windows, then open a new Mozilla window.
6.-Click help about plug-in and lots of supported Java MIME types.
7.-To see if the Java plug-in is working, you could try out some games from the Java software showcase (http://java.sun.com/getjava/showcase.html).
8.-Finally, type in a shell:
# rpm -Va
You should see a Java Icon in applications.

Espero haberte sido útil........paisano

after typing this: # rpm -Va

I get this after a long string of stuff gets printed out in a shell command:

...
...
...
.....
.....
missing /usr/share/java
missing /usr/share/java/libgcj-3.3.2.jar
missing /usr/share/java/postgresql.jar
......
......
Unsatisfied dependencies for squirrelmail-1.4.0-1: php >= 4.0.4

Unsatisfied dependencies for autoconvert-xchat-0.3.7-13.2: xchat
S.5....T c /etc/xinetd.d/swat
missing /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_04/*


==================================
which tells me that Java is NOT installing, even though I always get this error:

D: opening db index /var/lib/rpm/Basenames create mode=0x42
package j2re-1.4.2_04-fcs is already installed

==================================
Anyone know how I can actually open this file (var/lib/rpm/Basenames ) and read what's inside of it? It keeps telling me that this is an unknown file type! (size 10.2mb)
