    Depending on how you became root, you may need to run it as /sbin/ldconfig.

    Did you run only `su'? In that case, try running `su -' instead. The dash tells su to perform a full login process instead of just changing the UID to 0.

    Hmm I get another error now. Here's what I am trying to do:

    I am installing the java runtime (j2re-1.3.1_11-linux-i586[1].rpm.bin) on redhat 9.

    I ran the binary and installed the rpm fine. I type "java --version" to see if it worked and get "Error: can't find libjava.so". So I put the line "/usr/java/jre1.3.1_11/lib/i386" (where the file is located) in my ld.so.conf file and run ldconfig. This is not working, it still can't find the libjava.so file.

    Please help me.

    It's quite natural that it didn't work by putting /usr/java/jre1.3.1_11/lib/i386 into ld.so.conf, since the libjava.so file isn't linked by the ELF loader. It is dynamically loaded by the java program later.

    It's still strange that it doesn't work, though... Maybe you should try upgrading to the latest version? 1.3.1 is pretty old, after all.

    you may want to install jdk1.4...its the latest.
    Fixing Unix is better than working with Windows.
