This is what I get when I follow the directions at:
First I made it an executable:
chmod a+x j2re-1_4_2_01-linux-i586-rpm.bin
Now I need to run the binary but it won't run.
bash: ./j2re-1_4_2_01-linux-i586-rpm.bin: bad interpreter: Text file busy
I also re-downloaded it and dropped the .bin off of the end and tried to install it. Replaced the dashes after the i586 with period and then chmod 660 j2re-1_4_2_01-linux-i586.rpm Got this:
j2re-1_4_2_01-linux-i586-rpm: read manifest failed: Success
Don't know what either error message means.
