This problem went away after a reboot.
I needed to upgrade a RH EL 4 system to Java 1.6. The system was running Java 1.4. I got the Java kit and installed it according to instructions, putting the jre1.6.0_21 directory in the /usr/share/java directory.
I'm getting this warning message, when invoking java.
Warning: unknown VM type on line 19 of `/usr/share/java/jre1.6.0_21/lib/i386/jvm.cfg'
Here's the file; line 19 is -client IF_SERVER_CLASS -server

What does this error mean? How do I remedy it?
