Ok im an uber newb I've got Suse 10 KDE 3.4 and i was wondering now that ive downloaded java, how do i install it?

Theres a .bin file when i click on it it just opens a text file and crashes. What do i do?

gentoo already have these packages java and azureus and i haven't tried installing the package manually yet.

about installing java just in case you haven't installed it yet and you're using java linux from blackdown, you can read the install manual for j2re: ftp://ftp.tux.org/pub/java/JDK-1.4.2...1/INSTALL-j2re

you'll might also have the complete info about how to run azureus in linux by reading the azureus howto

http://azureus.sourceforge.net/howto_linux.php

this should also be a helpful tip for you too: http://www.linux-noob.com/forums/lof...php/t1447.html

thanks

So would i be right in saying that .bin files are run/executed through the console?

Thanks again for your help Konsole, if i run into trouble i will ask some more, i'm new to linux and i still have many more things i need to learn/fix.

Thanks.

got this far

Hi again Konsole i got half way through and now i'm stuck. I write it in letter for letter and it doesnt seem to want to go any further.

I get this error in console

when i type :rpm -iv jre-1_5_0_07-linux-i586.bin i get this error.

:not an rpm package (or package manifest):


and when i type rpm -iv jre-1_5_0_07-linux-i586.rpm i get this error.

failed : No such file or directory

any ideas?

i guess that's not an rpm. try

Code:
cd /usr/local
bash jre-1_5_0_07-linux-i586.bin
export PATH=/usr/local/j2re1.4.2/bin:$PATH
continue reading the instructions of
ftp://ftp.tux.org/pub/java/JDK-1.4.2...1/INSTALL-j2re

This is what I do, I like to install it into /usr/local/jre1.5.0_07.

So, as root,

move/copy the bin file to /usr/local

From a terminal

Code:
cd /usr/local
chmod +x jre-1_5_0_07-linux-i586.bin
./jre-1_5_0_07-linux-i586.bin
Then you have to agree to the license and it will unpack everything.

You will now have a jre1.5.0_07 directory in /usr/local.

Two options here 1) you can expand $PATH to include /usr/local/jre1.5.0_07/bin or 2) (my preference as I like to keep $PATH simple) soft link all the binaries to somewhere in your path (in this example /usr/local/bin).

To do 2)

Code:
ln -sv /usr/local/jre1.5.0_07/bin/* /usr/local/bin/
Notice the space between .../bin/* and /usr/...

To check everything works

Code:
java -version
should print a nice little message

do u mean konsole? just highlight the text using a mouse, drag then copy. Paste it on a text editor first so that it won't be messy then copy it again.

as usual before you can't write to that file because you have a process loaded from that file. do
Code:
killall -s 9 java
then go overwrite everything (press a to all)

ps. i gotta go now. good luck.. again.

later
