Newbie needs help Installing j2sdk-1_4_2-nb_3_5_1-bin-linux.bin


Hi,

I'm totally new to linux, defecting from the microsoft platform. I have just downloaded
j2sdk-1_4_2-nb_3_5_1-bin-linux.bin from the sun website, and would like toinstall it on my redhat 9 sytem. This installation includes the latest jdk and the latest netbeans ide.

i tried runing the command ./<filename> which i found from google, but with no success.

I would really appreciate it if anyone coul dpoint me in the right direction! I know basic commands for unzipping, and zipping files, and i know rpm is a command for installing rpm files, but i haven't the slightest idea of where to start with .bin files.

Thanks in advance,

Ben

Welcome to LQ.

What do you mean by no success? Did you get an error? try running:
chmod 700 j2sdk-1_4_2-nb_3_5_1-bin-linux.bin
./j2sdk-1_4_2-nb_3_5_1-bin-linux.bin

Thanks for you reply.

I can only run this part of the command at my shell prompt: chmod 700 j2sdk-1_4_2-nb_3_5_1-bin-linux.bin


I get theh following error when i run the entire comand you gave me:

chmod: failed to get attributes of `j2sdk-1_4_2-nb_3_5_1-bin-linux.bin': No such file or directory
chmod: failed to get attributes of `./j2sdk-1_4_2-nb_3_5_1-bin-linux.bin': No such file or directory
