Java Installation problems

When I open Konsole, I type su and type my password. Nothing wrong there, but when I type:

linux:/home/lhuser # /home/lhuser/Desktop/jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586-rpm.bin

I get this error:
bash: /home/lhuser/Desktop/jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586-rpm.bin: Permission denied

Why is this bloody thing denied?

What is the ouput of ls -l jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586-rpm.bin ?

It sounds like the file doesn't have execute permissions. Use the command
 chmod +x jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586-rpm.bin
to allow the file to be executed.

I hope this helps

Like this:

/home/lhuser/Desktop/chmod +x jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586-rpm.bin

If so, it doesn't work. I get this:

chmod: No such file or directory

What is wrong with what you tried is that chmod command is not in the directory named /home/lhuser/Desktop. chmod is a built-in command.

Let the file become executable
chmod +x /pathToDirectory/jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586-rpm.bin
A license will be shown, type q and after type yes.

The archive will be extracted to create a rpm. Type :
rpm -ivh /pathToDirectory/jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586-rpm
Of course replace pathToDirectory by the directory where you downloaded the file.
