I have not been able to find the answer to this question so far. If it is out there I am sorry! I have java 1.4.2 installed and I need to remove it. I am trying to get the IBM JDK 1.3.1 installed and configured so that I can install DB2 8.1. I have Red Hat WS 3.0 installed and am using KDE for the desktop. I used the RPM to install both but I need to remove them both and start over.
thanks for the docs. however in my current newbie skill level I am unable to remove the java version.
rpm -e [--allmatches] [--nodeps] [--noscripts] [--notriggers] [--repackage] [--test] j2re-1_4_2_05-linux-i586.rpm
error: package [--allmatches] is not installed

Is my syntex correct? do I need to be in a certain folder to issue the command?
People might get the impression that you're completely
lazy if you keep asking stuff like that without an
indication that you've read but not understood the
man-page. And personally I'm quite reluctant to
run a non-payed lookup-service ;)
This script is a placeholder for the /usr/bin/java and /usr/bin/javac
master links required by jpackage.org conventions. libgcj's
rmiregistry, rmic and jar tools are now slave symlinks to these
masters, and are managed by the alternatives(8) system.
This change was necessary because the rmiregistry, rmic and jar tools
installed by previous versions of libgcj conflicted with symlinks
installed by jpackage.org JVM packages.
Is there any easy ways to fix what looks like a messed up java install?
I'd assume that this script is part of this package:
rpm -ql redhat-java-rpm-scripts-1.0.2-2
and see whether it actually is.
If it is part of that (and you already did install the
IBM jdk that DB2 wants) you could erase the
scripts as well, and create a java.sh script
in /etc/profile.d that sets up the environment
variables appropriately ...
Either should work ... I'm not familiar enough
with rpm though to know for sure how rpm
would handle that manually modified file
in case you decided to un-install or update
it later on. My personal approach would be
to remove the rpm it belongs to, and create
a shell script as I mentioned, but then I'm a
control-freak when it comes to my computers ;)
