Here is my output:

Quote:
MyDevNVR:/home/myusername # echo $PATH
/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/sbin:/root/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/bin/X11:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/games:/usr/lib64/jvm/jre/bin:/usr/lib/mit/bin:/usr/lib/mit/sbin:/home/myusername/java/jrel.7.0_04/bin
MyDevNVR:/home/myusername # PATH=$(echo $PATH | sed -e 's#:/usr/lib64/jvm/jre/bin/##')
MyDevNVR:/home/myusername # echo $PATH
/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/sbin:/root/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/bin/X11:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/games:/usr/lib64/jvm/jre/bin:/usr/lib/mit/bin:/usr/lib/mit/sbin:/home/myusername/java/jrel.7.0_04/bin

Anything I'm doing wrong here??

Thanks for your help

The path did not get removed...

Thanks
I thought you will spot the mistake there but you are matching a closing '/' which isn't in the $PATH. So try with

Code:
PATH=$(echo $PATH | sed -e 's#:/usr/lib64/jvm/jre/bin##')
instead of

Code:
PATH=$(echo $PATH | sed -e 's#:/usr/lib64/jvm/jre/bin/##')

Have you tried just following the instructions from Oracle?

How do I download and install Java for my Linux computer? - https://www.java.com/en/download/help/linux_install.xml

What are the Linux x64 self-extracting binary installation instructions for Java ? - https://www.java.com/en/download/hel...64_install.xml

Or using YAST?

Well, you did this:

export PATH=$PATH:/home/myusername/java/jrel.7.0_04/bin

do this instead, putting new path IN FRONT of old path. That'll fix ya!

export PATH=/home/myusername/java/jrel.7.0_04/bin:$PATH

As far as editing the default path is concerned, check for profile files in /etc.

Wonders why they are messing with $PATH?

it is not that difficult to install Java. and you certainly do not need to be messing with $PATH.


1) Use the package manager your distro comes with
2) failing that follow the steps on Oracle's page
