Smile Java installation

I guess that you have installed the JDK RPM package from Sun.
After that you must modify your /etc/profile or ~/.bash_profile file by adding
where .... is path to your JDK installation (something like /usr/java/....).


But I think there is problem with the Sun JDK which sometimes crashes with some versions of glibc so I suggest you to use IBM JDK.

RedHat 9

Where in /etc/profile do I add the /usr/java/j2re1.4.1_04/plugin/i386/ns4
and do I add all of " /usr/java/j2re1.4.1_04 "?
