Trouble Installing Java

I recently installed Fedora on my computer, and I'm having trouble installing Java. I can download Java from the website, but when I try to install it the terminal says "directory not found" (after I try to change the directory to install it to). What am I doing wrong and how can I install Java?? BTW, I am new at this so step by step instructions would be great. Thanks!

You should not need to change to a directory to install java in. You will need to go to the directory that you downloaded it to. You will need to login as root to install this so save it to /root

make sure you download the rpm.bin file


open a command prompt and do the following:

cd /root
chmod a+x jre-6u13-linux-i586-rpm.bin


Answer yes

java should now be installed, you can verify if you type

rpm -qiv jre


fedora, installing, java
