Hello, finally I've run into a problem atext doc hasnt been able to help me through.
I have been trying to install LimeWire and in order to do so I need Java Virtual machine. Well, i went to Java.sun.com and downloaded their latest non beta release of Virtual Machine. I downloaded the 40 meg SDK version since it was reccommended in the last post reguarding LimeWire install. Well, everything went according to the way the html tutorial said it should except when I tried verifying the install by typing java -version I got no response except a bash error stating that there was no such command.
Anyone know whats going on? The RPM installed perfectly according to my kernel, I did it in the console as root as the doc stated, and I verified that java.sh was created and the directory leading to java.sh was truely there. So why isn't Java Virtual machine installed?
Actually I'm running Mandrake 9.1. I used their rpm uninstaller to uninstall the GNU compiler. Thanks, i'll see if blackdown.org's works.
The weird thing is that i installed the Java.sun version and it's listed as an installed rpm. But I get a bash error that states that there is no java command. Yet the directory and everythign works fine. Do I need to uninstall the java.sun version before installing blackdown.org's?
Well, I uninstalled the previous SDK version. No need for me to develop my own Java since I'm not a programmer yet or that advanced. I'll just take things slowly in that area.
Alright, Now how do I set my path for the Black Hawk version so that LimeWire install will recognize that I have VM installed.
Thanks a lo by the way for your help.
In the console Ityped kedit .bashrc and kedit opened with that file.
Now, where in the file do I add this. I just want to make sure I dont mess anything up.
Here's what my file looks like.
# User specific aliases and functions
# Source global definitions
if [ -f /etc/bashrc ]; then
at the end of the file (all in all it doesnt matter but if there's another statement that exports PATH u must not declare or export your path before that!)
then u can type
and it will be available
