How to run Sun JDK 1.5 without conflict from libgcj?
I know this question is similar to other threads, but I haven't seen any that directly address my question.
I'm running Fedore Core 3. When I type "java -version" I get the output from the placeholder configured using alternatives(8). My goal is to use the Sun JDK 1.5.0 and remove any conflict from libgcj. I'm afraid I don't quite understand the dependencies.
The crux of my question is: how do I remove dependencies on libgcj so I can use the Sun JDK? Or, I should first ask, can I run without libgcj (not remove it, just circumvent it)? It seems to me that setting my PATH to point to the new Java installation should completely bypass the libgcj, correct?
Should I remove all configurations for java using the alternatives(8) utility? Do I need to do anything additionally?
