Can't access folder in Java install
 
This is a strange one that has me stumped, but may have an easy answer for a veteran.

I've been installing the Java plugin from the Firefox site (tried IBM and Sun flavours. When I run the install script it creates the folder with the version number, in this case: jrel.5.0_07. However, I can't get the folder to open for love nor money. The error message is

bash: cd: jrel.5.0_07: No such file or directory

When I run find then the folder is accessed and its contents can be seen, I just can't open the damn thing.

I installed it under root via su and I can't complete the installation as I have to copy/link a couple of things from in there. Annoyingly, I installed once before and it worked fine.

I tried installing to different folders under /usr, but no joy. Also checked / changed the permissions using chmod (up to 777). It allowed me to do that and still wouldn't let me in.

Anyone got any ideas?

you're typing l instead of 1 for jre1.5.0_07, for future reference, if you think it's possible that you may be mistyping a filename or directory name, type the first few characters and hit the tab button on your keyboard and it will automagically complete the filename for you.

Oops... looks like that sorted it. Thanks for the tip, I'll try to remember it in future.

Doh!
