Installing Java SDK and Eclipse


I have a tar.gz file for the install of Eclipse and rpm.bin for both Java JRE and Java SDK. This will be my first command line install, so I was wondering if somebody might be willing to walk me through it.

For the jre and jdk rpm.bin files;

chmod +x <the name of the rpm.bin file here>
./<the name of the rpm.bin file here>

FYI: if this is the 32-bit version (i586) of the jdk then the jre is included no reason to install both.

If you are not root when running both commands the second command will create the binary rpm for installation later but the rpm file will not be installed.

How do I change directories to my Downloads folder? I figured I could just run the command cd /home/Downloads, but it does not work. The folder is in Dane's Home on my desktop. Another thing, if I did a full install that included the developer's applications, does that mean I already have the necessary development kits to run and compile Java and C++ code?

Your home directory is /home/username not /home, so try: cd /home/Dane/Downloads

If that fails then do a search for the file(s);

locate <the full downloaded file name here>

For the most part yes...

Ok I figured out the tar.gz files. That was rather easy, but I am still struggling with these rpm.bin files. I think I am typing the commands right and this is what I get.
[root@localhost Downloads]# chmod +x j2sdk-rpm.bin ./j2sdk-rpm.bin
[root@localhost Downloads]# chmod a+x j2sdk-rpm.bin ./j2sdk-rpm.bin
[root@localhost Downloads]# exit
exit
I tried it the other way too because thats what it said to do on the Java site. It doesn't give me any error messages but nothing happens.

After typing: ./jdk-6u1-linux-i586-rpm.bin you should see the License Agreement and you have to press the spacebar a number of time to get to the end then accept the agreement. Here is a step by step after downloading;

Quote:
$ ls -al jdk-6u1-linux-i586-rpm.bin
-rw-rw-r-- 1 lenard lenard 60680996 Jun 29 11:25 jdk-6u1-linux-i586-rpm.bin

$ chmod +x jdk-6u1-linux-i586-rpm.bin
$ ls -al jdk-6u1-linux-i586-rpm.bin
-rwxrwxr-x 1 lenard lenard 60680996 Jun 29 11:25 jdk-6u1-linux-i586-rpm.bin

Since I do not need to install the package I added the switch (-x) to the command;
$ jdk-6u1-linux-i586-rpm.bin -x

Means you were not root (or equivalent) when you typed the command is all, not a big deal. You should have the rpm package available for installation, as root type;

rpm -Uvh jdk-6u1-linux-i586.rpm
