Where to extract j2re-1_4_2_03-linux-i586.bin?


First day in linux ever.
I've downloaded j2re-1_4_2_03-linux-i586.bin and after an inferno got it extracted. (Didnt knew about terminal or console, and wasnt allowed to execute the file, noticed it atlast.)
Yast still doesent find the "libjawt.so"
Now heres the question:
In witch folder does the j2re-1_4_2_03-linux-i586.bin need to be, that it will extract to right folder(s)?

can't get anything installed before i figure this out. So please anyone? HELP for God sake, im so frustrated.

Then libjawt must be a dependency that you have to install first.

See if you can install it via Suse's installation method (YaST) If not do a seach on google and download and install it first.

this j2re-1_4_2_03-linux-i586.rpm should install the needed libjawt.so, but if I try to install it with yast, it complains that it doesend find libjawt.so, i tried manual and automatic install, no luck. They "installed"(extracted) it, but maybe in wrong location. As the link u send me describes it doesent need to be installed in any particular folder, any will do. have i got this right? sounds odd to me if its so.

I think it actually says you can 'download' to any directory. It should install the files into the correct directory which is why you have to do it as root - otherwise it wouldn't have permissions.

I meant use Yast to try to install libjawt - if YaST can't do it you'll have to search for it and do it manually I'm afraid

the faq's never say _where_ to install /extract. if i have to do it manually, i havent found more specific advises. so i really dont know what to do manually (like where to copy those files that i just extracted) its everytime download, compare size, extract ==> voila !
im still missing the voila!-part.
thanks for ur interest anyway!
im logged in as root, and used the 'su' command

what i need to know (desperately is where to put these files(including the pisses-me-so-off-libjawt.so). Where? everywhere are 'lib' folders, and other similar folders that the packet includes. i dont want to mess the system up in my first day

if i figure this out, ill make a total newbie step-by-stap-holding-hand-and-praying-faq how to get this libjawt.so thingy working,(ofcourse trying to explain why something is done)

First of all - are we looking at the same instructions - this is what I see.

1. Download and check the file size.

You can download to any directory you choose.

Before you download the file, notice its byte size provided on the download page on the web site. Once the download has completed, compare that file size to the size of the downloaded file to make sure they are equal.

2. Extract the contents of the downloaded file.

Change directory to where the downloaded file is located and run these commands to first set the executable permissions and then run the binary to extract the RPM file:

chmod a+x j2re-1_4_2_<version>-linux-i586-rpm.bin

./j2re-1_4_2_<version>-linux-i586-rpm.bin

Note that the initial "./" is required if you do not have "." in your PATH environment variable.

The script displays a binary license agreement, which you are asked to agree to before installation can proceed. Once you have agreed to the license, the install script creates the file j2re-1_4_2_<version>-linux-i586.rpm in the current directory.

3. Become root by running the su command and entering the super-user password.

4. Run the rpm command to install the packages that comprise the Java 2 Runtime Environment:

rpm -iv j2re-1_4_2_<version>-linux-i586.rpm

5. Delete the bin and rpm file if you want to save disk space.

6. Exit the root shell.

yup, the same thing

3. Become root by running the su command and entering the super-user password.

4. Run the rpm command to install the packages that comprise the Java 2 Runtime Environment:

rpm -iv j2re-1_4_2_<version>-linux-i586.rpm

means:

dsl-lprgw2nf6:/home/wictro/Documents # su
dsl-lprgw2nf6:/home/wictro/Documents # rpm -iv j2re-1_4_2_03-linux-i586.rpm
Preparing packages for installation...
j2re-1.4.2_03-fcs
dsl-lprgw2nf6:/home/wictro/Documents #

right?
still i get libjaw2.so not available

btw. thanks for checking the site!! (and concern)
