HELP: Java and Eclipse Installation 101 on RedHat 9
Hello. I am a Linux newbie.
Could someone please spell it out for me, step by step and line by line how to install Java 2SE on my computer and then install the latest release of Eclipse. Ironically enough I am a software developer in Java and C# (on Windows) and I can't seem to figure this out.
This is what I have done so far:
- Downloaded the Java2SE 1.4.1 SDK
- Performed the following on my machine:
chmod a+x [package]
rpm -iv [package]
At this point it took it's sweet time and then that was it. It placed a java directory in the /usr directory and I set the path variable:
export PATH = $PATH:/ usr/java
As you can see I am lost.... HELP, please HELP.
