Installing Azureus


I have Mandrake 10.1 and I want to install Azureus.

I installed the Java -->jre-1_5_0_01-linux-i586-rpm.bin

I entered it this way.

Using the cd command, i went to that directory, and then did ./jre-1_5_0_01-linux-i586-rpm.bin

After this it created an rpm file in the same directory.

I installed that too using

rpm -iv jre-1_5_0_01-linux-i586-rpm

then it gave me some error saying that input-output error, (it was related for it's inability to unmount a share).....>>I wonder that it is related to the rpm installation.

Then it halted for about 30 secs, and then it got fine.

I am a newbie, I don't know whether after installation I should have got a message sayin that Installation complete etc.........>>>I did not get anything like that.

I downloaded the Azureus.jar, from the site.

Now i wonder whether it is the appropriate version , or I should have downloaded something else.

Please guide me for Installing Azureus.

Also tell me I have done a proper install of Java or not, if yes, how do i check that!

I don't know Mandrake, but installing stuff manually if you don't know what you're doing is almost never a good idea. Your distro should have a package management system (like apt-get in Debian or emerge in Gentoo or yast in Suse...) which takes care of all dependencies (like installing a Java Runtime Environment for Azureus).

To check Java is installed properly just type
Code:
java -version
at a command prompt.

Result should be similar to as below except in your case with 1.5.0.01 as the version.
Code:
prj@elinmai:~> java -version
 java version "1.4.2_06"
 Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_06-b03) 
 Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2_06-b03, mixed mode)
If this doesn't work right you may need to add Java to your path.

Yeah, there is something called Mandrake control Center in Mandrake.

But when i searched for Java, no results were found, and so thought of manually Installing that stuff.

I did not get the message that you have mentioned.

So it means that Java is not installed properly?

>>>>If this doesn't work right you may need to add Java to your path.

What does this mean?

Do the following,
[list=1][*]Start a console session and switch to root using "su -"[*]Change into /etc/profile.d e.g.
Code:
#cd /etc/profile.d
[*]make a file called java.sh e.g.
Code:
#emacs java.sh
[*]copy and paste the code below
Code:
 
#!/bin/sh
export JAVA_HOME=/opt/java
export MANPATH="$MANPATH:/opt/java/man"
export PATH="$PATH:/opt/java/bin"
[*]Save the file and make it executable e.g.
Code:
#ctrl-x ctrl-s
#chmod +x java.sh
[*]create a symlink to your java directory into /opt .e.g.
Code:
#ln -s /usr/java/jre-version /opt/java
[*]log out and in again and java should be working ok for all users.[/list=1]

There are other ways of configuring your java path, but I prefer this method becaus it makes java accessible to everyone. Just remember to update your symlink if you upgrade java.

Edit the script and remove or comment out the export MANPATH="$MANPATH:/opt/java/man". I wrote it for the jdk so maybe the jre doesn't have the manual. Before doing that does "java -version" print out the java version?

/opt may not be where your Java install resides.

Which directory is it in?

Sorry I don't know where it is.

I have a problem with the Find Option too.......It gets stuck up.

I don't know what is it happening. .....so i can't find my java too.

I have mentioned what I exactly did in my first post.

Maybe that helps.

Do yourself a favor - do an RPM search.

A quick search at Pbone got me this for your distro:

http://www.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i586.rpm.html

Installing an RPM of java,written for your distro will be much easier.

Yes, it can be done from the Sun downloads, but you have to update the path and know what you're doing. I munged through it in about twenty minutes, but that's only because I did the same in Windows recently. If you install manually, y ou'll have to update the PATH statement, and that's not easy in Linux. (It isn't supposed to be easy,either.)

If java does not return a version then I am sure you made an error in creating the symlink I suggested. Look in /opt, if there is a file called java delete it. Create a symlink as in step 6 above with the right jre version e.g.
Code:
#ln -s /usr/java/jre-1.5.0_01/ /opt/java
Check in /usr/java for the right path to your jre. When thats done, log out and back in again. Hopefully this time it will work properly.

I logged in as root and then went to

/opt

Now there was a file called java as you told me Reddazz.

Now, I deleted it.

When I tried to create a symlink , it told me that the specified file already exists.

So, do i now need to delete the one in /usr/bin?

One more thing.
the java does exist in /usr/java

No you need to delete the one in /opt. Do as root "rm -rf /opt/java" and then recreate the symlink using the instructions in my previous post. What is the version of java in /usr/java. If I have the exact version I can rewrite the script so that you don't have to mess around with creating the symlink if you keep having problems.
