Java Grumble Grumble Why Can't i get in in my path Grumble Grumble


Hello I'm using suse 9.0 and well for like 5 days now I seem to have lost my path. I was wondering if sombody on here knows were it went. You see i want to add /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_04/bin to the path. I've tried export path = I've tried set path= i've looked in every single config file as far as my little eye can see. So Now I shall cusult the wizzard of oz. Please wizzard grant me a brain....... Or at least some sleep been a few days know you know.... LOL but for serious If somebody could help me figure this out that would be great.

If you type PATH=/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_04/bin
echo $PATH will return
/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_04/bin

So if you want to keep your path, you should do as follow
export PATH=/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_04/bin:${PATH}

However it won't be permanent.
I have edited .bashrc in order to make it permanent. But there should be another way

It's normal
But you can add a line like this one
export PATH=/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_04/bin:${PATH}

Every time you launch bash it will tell him to add usr/java/j2re1.4.2_04/bin to his PATH
It works quite well

Again, I believe there is a better way to do it. But I am not aware of it.

If you don't where to add it. Add it at the end of your .bashrc file just beofre the ultimate fi
You will have to launch a new shell to check if it is working
