    Post Java Development kit in linux

    I have the jdk for linux, and was having a hard time getting it to work. The program will not do anything after clicking on it. j2sdk-1_3_1-linux-i386-rpm.bin

    I am still very new to linux so any help would be appreciated. Also does anyone else use this and what do they think.

    Hmm...
    Where did you download the file. I'll try to get it working on my Linux box

    Clicking a .bin file won't make a difference I don't think. Is it supposed to be an RPM file?

    If so, type rpm -Uvh <filename-here>
    and watch it magically install itself!

    I didnt download the file. It came on a CD that came in our book for java class. I was surprised to see that there was a version for linux. The extension wasnt just
    " .rpm" it was " .bin". When I selected it nothing happened.

    go to a shell
    then the directory where the bin is
    then filename.bin
    hit enter
    should work
