Java for mandrake 10.0 comunity


Hello.
I have some big trouble with getting java to work on my computer, i have mandrake 10.0 community.
I have tryed following these steps, to step 2, cause they told me that the rpm is not nesecery., but they dont work for me "ln -s /usr/java/jdk(eller-jre)/bin/* /usr/java".

I use Mozilla Firefox 0.8. And i have tryed this to "http://wp.netscape.com/plugins/jvm.html".

And i have tryed this to "http://www.java.com:80/en/download/help/linux_install.jsp#install-pkg". Non of them works for me.

Please help me cause im getting relly angry here.

Try downloading the runtime environment (j2se jre)) here

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html

After installing, go to the plugin folder of java and choose the i386 folder. Once inside, choose the ns610-gcc32 folder.
Open a terminal and cd into .mozilla/plugins, the "ln -s" the libjavaplugin found in the above folder.

If this doesn't work try the libjava plugins from the other 2 folders, deleting the original plugin entry first.

Try copying and pasting this link:

This should work.

You're on the right track.
1. cd to the folder it is in
2. run "./j2sdk-1_4_2_04-nb-3_6-bin-linux.bin" and let it go through its processes.

Don't type "run".

Just type: ./j2sdk-1_4_2_04-nb-3_6-bin-linux.bin

d1ny3: you need to give yourself execute permissions on the file. The simplest way to do that is to just type

chmod +x j2sdk-1_4_2_04-nb-3_6-bin-linux.bin

If that command gives you a similar "permission denied"-type error, then type "su" and enter the password to become root, and repeat the chmod command.

clarks was here helping you. I didn't notice, and jumped in and posted an answer before he did.

I'm sure that between us, we'll have you straightened out (or totally confused ) in no time!
