When I am installing jdk 1.7 in Oracle Linux by using the following

rpm -ivh jdk-7u9-linux-i586.rpm

However I am getting the following errors, how can I resolve these errors and install jdk 1.7?

Any help is highly appreciable.

Thanks

@swapyonubuntu I did that as root. Not sure whether rpm was corrupt or not. But installation I did a reboot and when I typed java -version it showed correct version. Thanks – user75ponic Nov 9 '12 at 18:53
