Any help that anyone can give will be greatly appreciated.
First off, I would also like to note that I am a little new to Fedora, but I'm starting to catch on.
I'm running a newly formated Fedora 8 system.
Oh, and for reference, I did try doing everything below as root.
I am attempting to set up a cluster of three computers to do grid computing using the Globus Toolkit 4.
To do this, I have to start by installing GCC (done), Java, and Apache (which comes with Java).
Though, when I try to install Java via the .bin file from the terminal,I receive the error message
The installer is unable to run in graphical mode.
Try running the installer with the -console or -silent flag
So, according to the Java website, these flags are not supported. I tried them anyway, and got an 'unsupported' error message. Instead, according to the troubleshooter, you are supposed to run in a C shell
setenv DISPLAY your-local-host:0.0
Since I have a bash shell, I instead ran
export DISPLAY=[local IP]:0.0
Looking at the environment variable, it is set correctly now. Still, no luck with running the program.
Now, I decided, from the advice from some colleagues, to try using something called 'Yum'. Apparently it is meant for updating the system, but it should also be able to tell me if something is the wrong version, and what exactly it is, or what is throwing an error? Well, I went to try to configure it. From what I've gathered, I have Yum installed, but how can I link it to see why this install is failing?
Or better yet, does anyone know a work around so that I can get the Java installed regardless of Yum?
The file I'm installing is j2sdk-1_4_2_13-nb-5_0-linux-ml.bin
Thanks for anything in advance!
