i'm new to linux and i was trying to install the java JDK with EE on ubuntu. I downloaded the .bin file (java_ ee_ sdk-5_08-jdk-6u17-linux.bin) from the sun site & followed the install instructions below (as root user instructions are from the sun website):
Download and check the download file size to ensure that you have downloaded the full, uncorrupted software bundle.
- Make sure that execute permissions are set on the self-extracting binary.
Run these command: chmod +x java_ ee_ sdk-5_08-jdk-6u17-linux.bin
- Change directory to the location where you would like the files to be installed.
The next step installs the JDK into the current directory.
- Run the self-extracting binary.
Execute the downloaded file, prepended by the path to it. For example, if the file is in the current directory, prepend it with "./" (necessary if "." is not in the PATH environment variable):
./java_ ee_ sdk-5_08-jdk-6u17-linux.bin
I always get an 'No such file or directory'-error, i'm certain the path is correct & i'm not sure what else could be wrong...
I'm running a 64-bit version of Ubuntu 9.10 in Vmware workstation 8.5
