Java SDK installation trouble


Hello All,

I'm running Mandrake 10.1 and am trying to install a Java SDK but run into this problem:

...
Do you agree to the above license terms? [yes or no]
yes
Unpacking...
Checksumming...
0
0
Extracting...
./j2sdk-1_4_2_04-linux-ia64.bin: line 354: ./install.sfx.21238: cannot execute binary file
Done.
...

I haver also tried the rpm and I get the same error message...

What is the problem?

Two questions:

Are you running 10.1 64 bit edition and/or have a 64 bit processor?
Are you doing this as root?
Regards
Chris

In this first post its indicated this has already been tried. Anyway, I should've been more specific in my question. Are you running your system on an itanium processor as that is what that package is fore. If you have an AMD then you need to grab the -amd64 binaries.
Cheers
Chris
