Whats this Lie-nix Thing?

I am a 100% total n00b to this forum, I picked up a version of Mandrake (now "Mandriva") a long time ago and tried to learn it. I'm still in high school, where they use Windows XP Pro, so I don't boot Linux often. After taking a Java Programming class (Because I wanted to take the AP Exam), I was like "Hey, why not try my final project in Linux? I hadn't ever tried any Java in Linux. My server program worked fine, no problems. As soon as I opened the client, the JOptionPane.showInputDialog opened, asking for the IP as it should. However, there was no box to enter the IP address of the server in, is this a problem with Linux, or is it because I coded it in Windows to work with Windows? Any help is greatly appreciated. A link to a Mandrake Java compiler would be nice too.

Is it a boxed version (ie bought from mandrakestore or a supplier)? The download edition doesnt come with Java etc. Try downloading a newer version of java from (install instructions can be found at:

You should be able to uninstall the old version using the package manager in the control centre.
