Hi All, downloaded and installed the latest jre, [root at localhost java]# rpm -iv jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586.rpm Preparing packages for installation... jre-1.5.0_06-fcs [root at localhost java]# ls javarpm jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586.rpm jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586-rpm.bin [root at localhost java]# [root at localhost java]# whereis jre-1.5.0_06-fcs jre-1.5: [root at localhost java]# which jre-1.5.0_06-fcs /usr/bin/which: no jre-1.5.0_06-fcs in (/usr/kerberos/sbin:/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/root/bin) [root at localhost java]# find / -name jre-1.5.0_06-fcs -print find: /proc/3730/task: No such file or directory find: /proc/5694/task: No such file or directory [root at localhost java]# But, it doesn't create the directory it's supposed to as per this, 8. The JRE is installed in jre1.5.(version number) sub-directory under the current directory. In this case, the JRE is installed in the */usr/java/jre1.5.0* directory. Verify that the *jre1.5.0* sub-directory is listed under the current directory. Type: *ls* I get no sub-directory, > [root at localhost java]# ls > jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586.rpm jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586-rpm.bin The RPM exists, though, [root at localhost java]# rpm -qa | grep jre-1.5.0_06-fcs jre-1.5.0_06-fcs What am I not doing? I followed the install doc correctly. Cheers. Mark Sargent.
