java / game install prob

Hello, I'm quite new to the whole linux thing. Just trying to get some of the comforts I am used to from windoze.
I'm trying to install a java game, but anytime I run java, it gives me the errors as follows:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: dsf
at (/usr/lib/
at _Jv_ThreadRun(java.lang.Thread) (/usr/lib/
at _Jv_RunMain(java.lang.Class, byte const, int, byte const, boolean) (/usr/lib/
at __libc_start_main (/lib/

it does this no matter what I try and run. I'm running debian.
Any suggestions appreciated, and although I did a search and found nothing, I hope this isnt a repeat/common question.

It may be that the java binary for your distribution is a little behind. I'd check to see what version java you're running, and if it's not the latest, update it with apt-get or whatever Debian uses to update their packages with.

I'm pretty sure its uptodate. I think its an issue with the path, and I can't seem to solve it.

thanks for replying.

well, I know have java sort of running. When I run Java now I get this error. Java/lang/NoClassDefFoundError: java/lang/Object

I think its something to do with $PATHCLASS and the files tools.jar and rt.jar but I don't have either of those, so I'm somewhat lost as far as what I should do.
any help you can offer would be great.
thanks again.
