Full Version: Help Installing Jvm Please
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support

I have installed Redhat 7.1 on my mum's old (not so excellent) computer - she wantsa peer-to-peer filesharing program, so i'm going to install limewire. I went to sun.com and downloaded JRE, followed the instructions, and yet LimeWire still won't install and i can't view applets on webpages sad.gif

(note: I'm a linux newbie, but quite experienced in windows )

did you put the path to your jre to the system path?
Lurker

test it this way:
to add the jvm to your path type the following:

PATH=$PATH;<path to your jvm installation>
export PATH

then try to see if you can run java commands without
being in the java install directory

for example change directorys to your /tmp folder
and then type java --version

see if anything shows up...should give you java
version number and a few other things

the only thing is ...is that when you reboot...
the path to your java install wont be there...so you have
to add it to your profiles file in the /etc directory...
i believe that is what the file name is.....
