Re: [RESOLVED]Re: JRE



You know what's funny; I tried the update-alternatives and found two
versions that I didn't want on my system (they were installed as
dependencies as I was testing out programs), deleted those and now running
java -version from anywhere just works! 8-)

<grin> Doing tech support can help more than just other people it seems ;)

Thanks Conrad, Janne, and Tony!
I was missing the update-alternatives...
Now I have:
gymsmoke@croatus:~$ which java
/usr/bin/java
gymsmoke@croatus:~$ ls -l /usr/bin/java
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 2007-02-10 03:15 /usr/bin/java
-> /etc/alternatives/java
gymsmoke@croatus:~$ java -version
java version "1.5.0_08"

Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_08-b03, mixed mode, sharing)
