Removal of Java Runtime Environment (JRE)
 
Hello,

I was trying to install JRE on my system and screwed up the install the first time doing it. So, I removed all trace files and was going to download it again.

I wanted to make sure all traces were gone so I ran a locate java from the shell and it brought up all sorts of files that I thought I had deleted. However, in the GUI it doesn't show the files. How can I tell if the files are indeed gone or not?

updatedb first, then run a locate:
su -
enter root pass
updatedb &&
locate java

Cool

Okay, well apparently it was installed, however, how do I remove all traces of it and start over again? Thanks.

Well whatever locate java returns will give you your answer. That is where java is still installed.

How did you "try" to install it before? If you just copied the binary tarball over to /usr/local/java or something like that, a rm -r of the java directory should suffice. Remove the $PATH variable you changed (assuming you did) and that should be good. IF you used an rpm, an:
rpm -e java
Should also suffice. So, it depends on how you "attempted" to install it that will determine the course of uninstall.

Cool
