I download and install Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition and it cann't compile. The javac command seems non-existant (and if Sun is so 'cross-platform' as they say they will use the same commands in the compilers of all the OSs they support).

Maybe I will try NetBeans, but I have broadband only in College... it will take a while.

I'm not desperate, but I think that for now I will have to install that toy OS used in 90% of all computers and use the "standard compilers" for my first Java assignments

If you've installed the sdk (and not just the jre) have you put the location of the directory containg javac into your path environment variable? It definitely works on Linux.

Sun hates Linux and so their RPM for Java is really broken (see here). Alternatively, you can manually install the tarball into /opt, or rebuild the RPM using the package from the JPackage Project (instructions).

Thanks for the link. Java is not that cross-platform as most people think at 'first sight'... I've installed Win2k and will reinstall SuSE 9.1 tomorrow (...stupid Windows cann't make dual boots). I've some programs that are only available for Windows (did anyone know of a Linux port of Apophysis? - it's GPL so it can be ported legally) and it's more convenient to just use the "standard" Java compiler.

Did anyone think that Java is really cross platform? What about NetBeans, do I've to install it manually too?
