    I had a similar issue I think, I was able to get everything working after reading a post on manrake tips for free, maybe it will point you in the right direction:

    It's not so much more work to get Java directly from SUN, go to their download page: and select Download J2SE JRE. Then follow the instructions at
    chmod a+x j2re-1_4_2_05-linux-i586-rpm.bin
    [agree to the license agreement]
    urpmi j2re-1_4_2_05-linux-i586.rpm
    ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_05/bin/java /usr/bin/java

    (note: there was already a link in: /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ pointing at /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_05/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/, but the last ln command was necessary to get java into the standard executable path.)

    ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_05/bin/java /usr/bin/java was the key for me.
    which I read on
