    JAVA


    I've been going thru some courses on my own for JAVA, and started it under Win98 when I still didn't have a usable MDK install. I think I have most of the bugs out now, and would like to be able to use the same JAVA version that I had in Win (I have the Linux version) I keep getting conflicts, and the konsole just hangs when I try to run the JAVA bytecode that I already had compiled in Win. It's platform independant, but I recompiled a couple of them anyway with the same results.

    I have kaffe installed, but lose JAVA for the browsers if removed. I also have IBMJava that came with my older mdk8 distro, but don't want to use it for fear of breaking my system yet again.

    I've done a locate for java, and javac, and found both. They appear to be symlinks to java.wrapper, and all reside in the /usr/bin directory. It gives no information as to what package they came with, tho.

    What packages do I need to remove, and which files do I need to edit to be able to use the java package I have?

    MDK 9.0, upgraded to 9.1
    Sun Java 1.3.0 RPM on hand
