Opera Startup + Setting JAVA_HOME

1. Where to find the file that contains startup program info?
Should I edit one of the rc0-6.d files, or is it the etc/init.d?
2. when I do "export JAVA_HOME= /path" it won't stay in the env,
can u say what I did wrong?

I think the file you want is /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit. I just added this line to the path section:
# Set the path
export PATH
That should do it ... Just make sure you add the relevant path.

rc.sysinit file says: "runs once at boot time"...can't find anything related to Opera loading on startup.
Also, still can't get the JAVA_HOME path to stay in env. When exiting Terminal window and trying to startup/shutdown Tomcat again, the java path disappears. why?
