Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Does anyone know where I can find the following packages for Linux:
I would prefer to have an rmp, self-extracting file. Either that, or a complete explanation with the packages explaining where everything goes. If you say to get the JDK, please don't, because I already had some memory problems with that (computer memory, that is). Thanks.
Well, that's too bad about your memory problems, because 2 of those are in the official Sun JDK (java.util and Swing). Maybe try one of the open source JDK implementations instead (kaffe, gcj, etc.).
If you explained what you were trying to do it would probably help with the number of answers.
Distribution: Ubuntu 10.04 (used to be Red Hat 7.1, then Red Hat 9, then FC 2, FC 5, FC 6, FC 9 and Ubuntu 8.04)
If the memory problems are to do with Java running out of memory, then you might be able to fix that by adding the -Xmx parameter to your java command. This defines the maximum amount of memory that is available in the java memory pool. Its default is 64MB, and if your computer has a lot more than that you could get your application running by using a value of -Xmx512.
Then I don't see what the deal is, you just search for TerminalIO and BreezySwing and download the jar files for them. It isn't like you'll get rpm files that just have 1 or 2 jars in them. Do you want to use them for development? You still haven't explained what you want to do, so it isn't clear.
I've looked for them up and down Google, and all around the java.sun site. I don't see any pagckages for Linux. And I want the packages for Linux, buecause I don't know where the packages go. in /usr/bin/java?
I've put it anywhere I please since it's for personal use. Still, the compiler doesn't recognize TerminalIO and BreezySwing. Yes, I do say
at the beginning of my program (outside the class declaration of course), but it just doesn't recognize the package.
Do I need to specify the class path? If so, please tell me how. Thanks.
That's not what I'm concerned about. I'm simply concerned about where the packages go. There are plenty of instructions for Windows, but I've scoured Google, and I don't see any for Linux.
That is what you are concerned about !
If you care to read carefully the above mentioned link, you'll find that the instructions are given for Linux too (i.e. Other Environments).
Well, I concede they aren't given clearly enough, so here the answer your are looking for:
copy these jars to your <jre-directory>/lib/ext directory.
It's a little strange, I know, but I'll post my own answer in this one (I don't know if anyone else answered it...sorry). For future reference, you need to create a CLASSPATH for the packages. I actually created an alias to make it easier. But, that's how you do it
Okay, maybe creating a class path didn't help. I know I'm annoying, but if someone knows what to do, please tell me. I've done everything I know how to do: try yum, unzip a package, download a birnary file, creating a class path, placing it in the java/lib/ext direcotry...
If anyone has had this problem and has fixed it, I would greatly appreciate it if you could tell me. Thanks so much.
