Shell Script? .Bin file?
Hey guys. I am completely new to the whole linux thing, but i am slowly learning things.
But, alas, as expected, it seems i have hit a bump in the road.
I have downloaded a Java file from the sun website called "jre-1_5_0_07-linux-i586-rpm.bin"
Now, for one: I don't know if i have the correct version.
I am running Mandrake 10.0, and i am just trying to get Java working so i can use Limewire.
I have tried the things that were posted in different threads, but it would seem as though nothing happened.
If any can suggest something, i would really appreciate it. Thanks!
there was a link right directly next to the download button you clicked to get the java install, the button said "Instructions"
Thanks for the quick response, but i hit another snag.
/bin/bash: ./jre-1_5_0_07-linux-i586-rpm.bin: /bin/sh: bad interpreter: Text file busy
Im not sure what it means, but it was after i typed:
I thought was the command line in the instructions.
A .bin file is a compiled binary program. No shell interpretation needed, as far as I know.
chown +x jre-1_5_0_07-linux-i586-rpm.bin #makes it executable
./jre-1_5_0_07-linux-i586-rpm.bin #runs it
This works for me...simple, no?
