You can do the following
  1. $chmod +x jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586.bin
  2. $./jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586.bin
  3. #mv jre1.5.0_06 /usr/local/java
You need to add java to your path so that its recognised throught your system. To do this do
  1. su
  2. vim /etc/profile.d/jre.sh
  3. add the code below to the file
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    
    export JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/java
    export MANPATH=$MANPATH:/usr/local/java/man
    export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/java/bin:/usr/local/java/jre/bin
  4. #chmod +x /etc/profile.d/jre.sh
  5. logout and back in again (or do source /etc/profile) and java will be in your path.

Thumbs up

Hello everyone,

Now I came to know why reddaz is called as GURU.
This is because reddaz knows what to tell and in which manner.

Just great. Hats off!
