Thumbs down

I am having problems with installation of Sun's Java development kit on my RHL7.1 (kernal 2.4) . I used both the jdk1_3_0_02-linux.bin and jdk1_3_0_02-linux-rpm.bin to install the directory structure. I also have the environment variables set to point to the java home and java bin path as outlined in the installation notes. The trouble is, I can get the the darn java executable to work. It just hangs when I issue java -version.

Someone sparked a notion that perhaps the binary distribution of non-open-source Sun JDK might not be compiled under kernal 2.4 and there is conflict. Anyone successful in loading JDK1.3 in RHL7.1 (kernal 2.4)?

I installed the non rpm version of jdk 1.3 and I had no problems. I'm running kernel version 2.4.2 on slackware.

Yep, I hear ya boinkingwinkie.

I recently upgraded from RH7 to RH7.1 and it's a shame about the JDK 1.3.x (Oops, I mean SDK!)
Also, it's a shame about the power down/reboot facility, but that's another battle ... )

Is the solution to downgrade?
