configure: error: Can't find "javac" in your PATH, when install/compile a program...


I searched the other threads, but couldnt find one that addressed my problem.....

I have installed (on Mandriva 2006) the J2RE-SDK and J2RE from Sun. At first if i typed ¨java¨ or ¨javac¨ it said that it wasnt in my path. So i searched on here and found a topic that solved that - I added a line to my ¨.bashrc¨. I logged in and out, now when i type ´java´ or ´javac´ at the command line they both work.

BUT, i am trying to compile a program.....but when i run ´./configure´ I get an error saying

¨configure: error: Can't find "javac" in your PATH¨

This is how it says to install it....

$ tar -xvjf iriverter-VER.tar.bz2
$ cd iriverter-VER
$ ./configure --with-swt=/path/to/swt.jar
$ make
# make install

I have downloaded the swt.jar file inserted it in the above.

Any ideas??? I am trying to install iriverter-0.14.

Thanks.

Hi
Try to do below things...


1)First set the path using command "PATH = $PATH:<PAth where u r java "bin" folder>"
eg:- PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_07/bin
2) Then type export PATH
3) ALso set JAVA_HOME this is the location of u r java instllation dir.
eg:/ JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_07
4)also write physicaly in /etc/profile

I tried the above, restarted my session with no luck. I also added it to /etc/profile:

Code:
# /etc/profile -*- Mode: shell-script -*- 
# (c) MandrakeSoft, Chmouel Boudjnah <chmouel@mandrakesoft.com>

loginsh=1

# Users generally won't see annoyng core files
[ "$UID" = "0" ] && ulimit -S -c 1000000 > /dev/null 2>&1

if ! echo ${PATH} |grep -q /usr/X11R6/bin ; then
    PATH="$PATH:/usr/X11R6/bin"
fi

if [ "$UID" -ge 500 ] && ! echo ${PATH} |grep -q /usr/games ; then
    PATH=$PATH:/usr/games
fi

umask 022

USER=`id -un`
LOGNAME=$USER
MAIL="/var/spool/mail/$USER"
HISTCONTROL=ignoredups
HOSTNAME=`/bin/hostname`
HISTSIZE=1000

if [ -z "$INPUTRC" -a ! -f "$HOME/.inputrc" ]; then
    INPUTRC=/etc/inputrc
fi

# some old programs still use it (eg: "man"), and it is also
# required for level1 compliance for LI18NUX2000
NLSPATH=/usr/share/locale/%l/%N

export PATH PS1 USER LOGNAME MAIL HOSTNAME INPUTRC NLSPATH
export HISTCONTROL HISTSIZE 

for i in /etc/profile.d/*.sh ; do
	if [ -x $i ]; then
		. $i
	fi
done

unset i

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_10/bin
JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_10
When i run &#180;java&#180; or &#180;javac&#180; in the shell it works, but it doesnt work as root - Is this the problem?? When i try to configure it, i tried both ways and still now luck.
