How about posting the error. I have installed a few jvms on my slack box without issue.

Why not use the default Slackware 'jre'

'slackware/l/jre-6u6-i586-3.tgz' from disk 1 ?

or ... 'jre-6u11-i586-1.tgz'
ftp://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/ftp.slac...2/slackware/l/
.....

You can use slackpkg to install. slackpkg install jre should do the trick

ok... I know I have jre, as I installed it from the disc 1.

I think I actually need the jdk; as when I try to install Art Of Illusion, I get an error about "/bin/java: error while loading shared libraries: libjli.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
"

I'll try installing that one.

Well, then you have it.

'find /usr/lib/ -name libjli.so'
/usr/lib/java/lib/i386/jli/libjli.so
......
cd ArtOfIllusion/
sh aoisetup.sh

... and it works ... on Slackware 12.2 .
.....

darnit... after finding the libjli.so and copying it to /bin/java, I get the following:
Code:
./aoisetup.sh: line 44: 18389 Segmentation fault      $JAVACMD
..drat

Something seems to be wrong with your java.

Line 44, aoisetup.sh, "... -jar aoi-linux-install.jar"
And in fact, the installer can as well be started without
using './aoisetup.sh' : 'java -jar aoi-linux-install.jar'
works too. .... So please try that.

How about updating to 'jre-6u11-i586-1.tgz', you will as
minimum have to reinstall java ( jre ).
And having 'libjli.so' in /bin/java/ is not right.

I bet I know what's wrong. I told the computer to copy libjli.so to /bin/java, which... isn't a directory, meaning I overwrote java. :P (duhr) How can I fix java, and where should I move the libjli.so?

Just delete your copy of libjli.so ....

And get that reinstall or update done, as suggested,
else you will never make it work ! ! !
