Java-related applications..


I was wondering if anyone was having a similar problem:

I was trying to install a few java-based applications, from .bin. These files always reutnr an error saying they can't find the JVM in the PATH variable.

I go into .bash_profile for both Root AND my user..and I edit it to have the directories.

When I echo $PATH though, it doesn't see the directories I added (I logged out, too.)

Anyone know the problem?

I think some script is overwriting stuff
i would just do a search for any file containing the Path declaration and substituting accordingly
or adding the lines:

$export JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/jdk/jre
$export PATH=${PATH}:${JAVA_HOME}/bin

Look in /etc/profile. There your $PATH is defined.
