Java on 64 bit FC4

I have been following several other 64 bit java related threads and learned that the only resource for a 64 bit firefox plugin is through blackdown java 1.4.2. I downloaded the .bin, but when I try to run it I get an error:

./j2sdk1.4.2/lib/unpack: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Failed to unpack jar files lib/

This is a fresh installation, and the file is present in /usr/lib. Can someone tell me how to fix this?

I realize this is probably a very simple problem, but I am also very new to linux. I am running FC4 on an AMD Athlon 64. Thank you for any help with this problem.

In case anyone is reading this, this is not a question that fits the Newbie category. It would be better to ask this in the software or programming forum.

Why not answer ltracy's question rather than criticize him about a posting error?


Perhaps you might be able to create a symbolic link in the Java setup directory to the directory containing the required file. IE: ln -s '/directory/filename'.

Have you had success yet with your JAVA install?

Yes I finally got it to work. If I remember right, the problem was solved by installing compat-gcc32.
