Hi,
I'm having problems with j2sdk-1_4_1 rpm package. The first time I tried to install the file, I received an error message telling me I had no space left and the installation was unsuccessful. No problem, I created plenty of space and tried installing again.

[usr@localhost]#rpm -iv j2sdk-1_4_1_02-fcs-linux-i586.rpm
preparing package for installation...
package j2sdk is already installed.

really???

[usr@localhost]#java -version
bash: java: command not found

hmmm...

so then I tried,
[usr@localhost]#rpm -e j2sdk-1_4_1_02-fcs-linux-i586.rpm
error: package is not installed

what?

so then I tried a force install
#rpm -Uvh --force --nodeps j2sdk blah blah..
Preparing... ######################[100%]
1:j2sdk ######################[100%]

And then....

[usr@localhost]# rpm -q j2sdk
package j2sdk-1_4_1_02-fcs-linux-i586.rpm is NOT installed.

I'm still pretty new to linux and I don't know what options I have left.
Does anyone have any suggestions that may help?

Thanks,

Dump the RPM. Get the tarball. Works for all distros.

Yea,

I threw away the rpm asnd went with the tar ball like you said. Everything installed with no problems. I should have done that from the start. Thanks
