    Those instructions are for Fedora Core 6, but they work just as well in Mandriva One 2007 :

    Once you followed the instructions, make sure the command :
    Code:
    java -version
    outputs something like
    Code:
    java version "1.5.0_09"
    Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_09-b01)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_09-b01, mixed mode, sharing)

    You don't have to create that directory. The installer will create it itself.

    Just make sure you are in the right directory, before doing
    Code:
    chmod +x jre-1_5_0_09-linux-i586-rpm.bin
    So enter the directory you downloaded the file and do
    Code:
    ls
    to make sure the file is there.

    Once you ensured the file is there, then you can just type "chmod +x jre" and hit TAB. It will autocomplete the name of the file. Much easier that way.
