unable to install j2sdk-1_4_2_04-linux-i586.bin: Error: tail: cannot open `+466'

Hi All,

I tried to install j2sdk-1_4_2_04-linux-i586.bin in my Linux System, but to no avail. i got the following error message when annswered "yes". I also tried to install different version but the same result. I already downloaded the file many times to make sure that it is not corrupted.

The syntax that I used to install is the following:


Error message:
Do you agree to the above license terms? [yes or no]
tail: cannot open `+466' for reading: No such file or directory
The download file appears to be corrupted. Please refer
to the Troubleshooting section of the Installation
Instructions on the download page for more information.
Please do not attempt to install this archive file.

My system info is the following:
Linux 2.6.17-1.2174_FC5smp

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance...
