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