install java in Slackware
I really need to install java in Slackware 10.0

If I can't I might have to add a windows partition gulp!

i tried the rpm but many depency problems came up and i don't think it's compatable

Java comes with Slackware. It's on disk one.

I have it on my system to do some of my CS homework.

blt@lunchable:~$ java -version
java version "1.4.2_04"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_04-b05)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2_04-b05, mixed mode)

Assuming you have the Slackware disk mounted at /mnt/iso then all you'll need to do is run the command

find /mnt/iso/ -name 'j2sdk*.tgz' -exec installpkg {} \;
Instant java goodness( ? ).

If you do a full install its already on your machine. Such programs as Azureus Bit Torrent need it:)
