shell scripts and installing java..
 
well i finally got blackdown java installed and working, what a job.. I have oh about 15 machines that I need to install it on..

Can someone point me in the right direction of a shell script to do it for me?

I would write a script to do it, but know nothing about writing a script and most resources are too complex for this noob..

Download java from sun:
http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

or try typing this. I think it will work but can't test it right now.
" wget http://java.sun.com/webapps/download...?BundleId=8222 "

download it to a directory like /tmp or something easy.
Now just cd to the directory it is in and type
"./j2re-1_4_1_03-linux-i586-rpm.bin"

That will run the installer and you will be done.

-----------------------

Scripts are EASY to write. Especially one to do something as trivial as install java. Check out these tutorials. The experience is good for you.
