Java on my fedora 13 comp???


I have a linux fedora 13 comp. It's a laptop Acer 5610-4608.

I am a student at Dekalb Tech and am a LINUX newbie. I just enrolled into the Java class and am trying to get Java loaded properly onto my computer.

I downloaded the version 6 (I think) JDK and I believe I got it installed correctly. I went to a test website and it said if the box showed PINK then my JDK was installed correctly.

Then I downloaded JGRASP per the instructor. How do I get it installed properly and what file is my executable to make it run?

Also, I was told I needed an IDE for my java. Any ideas there?


Thanks guys and girls! [SOLVED]

Once you extract JGRASP, change into it's directory and run './bin/jgrasp'. As far as needing an IDE,
Quote:
jGRASP is a lightweight development environment
.. if you need something heavier there are too many choices to list - you could possibly try Eclipse but I would have thought the instructor would require everyone to use the same IDE to make his/her life easier.

fedora 13 is past it's end of life
There is no support for it
Fedora 15 is the current

did you change the Alternatives !!! setting

OpenJDK was installed by default and is a old version ( there are no updates for 13 )

if you are going to use the NOT default already installed openjdk you will need to use "alternitaves" to set the Orcal java as the default


but I RECOMMEND using fedora 15
ONLY fedora 14 and 15 are supported and 14 's support will end in about 80 days

as for an IDE
install 15
eclipse is in the fedora repos
Code:
su -
yum install eclipse
