Having trouble installing Java 1.6 on Redhat via a SSH connection

Hi there,

I'm experiencing difficulty installing JRE 1.6 on my Redhat web server. I require the Java libraries in order to install a certain module for my website. Here is a log of the actions I took to try and install Java:

inflating: jre1.6.0_07/plugin/i386/ns7/
  inflating: jre1.6.0_07/plugin/i386/ns7-gcc29/
 extracting: jre1.6.0_07/plugin/desktop/sun_java.png
  inflating: jre1.6.0_07/plugin/desktop/sun_java.desktop
    linking: jre1.6.0_07/javaws/javaws  -> ../bin/javaws
Creating jre1.6.0_07/lib/rt.jar
Creating jre1.6.0_07/lib/jsse.jar

Have you tried the rpm.bin version? Or did you already install an rpm.bin version of another jre (you can't do so for more than one).

It is curious that just a few days ago, someone posted another jdk1.6 issue that affected Red Hat only. Maybe a bug in the jre?

I tried the RPM as well. It gave the same problem and I uninstalled it with the "rpm -e" command. Do you have the link of the thread with the JRE issue on Redhat? Maybe that person has a solution to my problem.
