j2sdk-1_4_1_02 Issues


Decided to download j2sdk & j2re 1.4.1

As I read the instructions located @
http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.1/insta...ml#install-rpm

I have run into a problem. When I type the initial command to "unpack" the .rpm so that I may agree to the license and continue, nothing happens.

chmod a+x j2sdk-1_4_1_02-linux-i586-rpm.bin

Any help would be great..

Intel Machine
SuSE 7.3
jre-1_2_2_014 previously installed

TOTALLY NEW AS THIS IS MY 1st WEEK w/Linux.

What is the command? Did you do:

./j2sdk*

and it did nothing?

I just issued the ./j2sdk* and it worked.

I was confused with the previous command chmod a+x*

I was expecting a message following the chmod, so I was under the impression that it was not working.

Guess if I understood the command I would not have made the aforementioned assumption

Thanks.

The command make the file executable. chmod stands for 'change mode' . If you are every curious as to what a command does you can check out the man pages for it:

man chmod

If you're wanting to get some sort of message when executing a command, you should check to see if the command has a "verbose" option. This usually outputs everything the command is doing.

man <command> to check and see if it mentions anything about that. Usually "-v".
