Java installation problem
I'm hoping some has seen this before, but I cannot figure this one out., and I've looked elsewhere for a while now.
I have this problem with my current linux kernel 2.0.35, and an older one (can't remember what I had before.) Anyway, I have downloaded Java sdk 1.4.09 (and several older ones throughout the last year or so) and every time I run the self-extracting file (not the rpm version, but the other one), I only get a directory j2sdk1.4.2_09 and a few config files. I do not get the java binaries or any other java goodies I normally get, almost as if the installation doesn't complete.
I know it doesn't work right, and I know the self-extracting file works because on one occasion I tried the EXACT SAME self-extracting install on Caldera and got the full Java sdk.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

These files you downloaded are source archives. Ones you extract them, you have to, generally, run "./configure", "make" and "make install" (last one as root) in order to prepare your configuration scripts, compile sources and install binaries.
