do I have java
How do I find out if I have java installed? Where do I look? I have some programs that require it and they cant seem to find it. Do I have to do something so they can use it? :?
Of note I got frustrated and went to the java website and downloaded the j2re java client and have tried to install multiple times, but It keeps saying the file is corrupted. Not sure what that is all about. :x
have you tried "emerge sun-jre-bin"?
AWESOME!!! :D That seemed to fix things. This sums up my problem with installing. When the manual gets to the package disk it is vauge how to install the programs AND what is on the disk to install. I still don't know what I might have missed during the install during that end phase. :roll:
During install it did mention something about no JDK or JAVA_HOME. Not sure what that is about, but the program I wanted to use seemed to work.
to see what programs are available via emerge and what programs you have installed try this command:
as root: emerge --search <whateveryouwant>
for example: emerge --search java
this will display all relevant entries with java in them such as sun-java and others. Hope this helps.
