Java Runtime Enviroment .bin file


Hello all,

I downloaded a java runtime enviroment file that is .bin the site said "self extracting .bin file."

The only other choice was a .rpm.bin, and I just chose one.

My point is, I have this file, and I'm not sure how to use it. I've tried just typing the filename in a console, as well as './filename.bin' and got nothing.

Any help is appreciated.

Well you didn't just get nothing, what did it say... The permissions might not be set to executable.

Oops, sorry Im not sure what I was thinking there.

At any rate, once I saw your post saying something about permissions I changed it to executeable and it's running.

Thanks.

There is an rpm package at http://java.sun.com . Its a named as *rpm.bin, so you download it, make it executable run it and then install the extracted rpm.
