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: http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html and select Download J2SE JRE. Then follow the instructions at http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/jre/install-linux.html:
chmod a+x j2re-1_4_2_05-linux-i586-rpm.bin
[agree to the license agreement]
ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_05/bin/java /usr/bin/java
(note: there was already a link in: /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so pointing at /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_05/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so, 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 www.mandrake.tips.4.free.fr
my problem is not resolved by using chmod a+x... it asking for root permissions.i am already a root user.how can i acces it.plz help me
