Question my JAVA_HOME environment variable changes automaticly


hello I have a problem with my JAVA_HOME environment variable

what I do:
export JAVA_HOME=/opt/SUNWappserver/jdk/
export PATH=$PATH:$JAVA_HOME/bin/

this is ok, but when I restart my PC

What does it say after the boot?

And what distro are you using?

Commonly that kind of thing will be set a) globally in
/etc/profile/<some_script> or b) individually in ~/.bashrc


Cheers,
Tink

found it

I found the problem,

I'm running SUSE 10.0 32bit.
I went to /etc/profile.d/
and changed the variable manual in alljava.sh and alljava.csh

tnx, Peter
