View Full Version : Java 1.4.2 on FC9 Help

21st December 2008, 06:28 PM
I have an application, JavaHMO, that requires Java I have tried installing this on FC9 with no luck. The Java install fails with "tail: cannot open +480, no such......"

I have tried a 'space' between the + and the 480, but then I get 2 error messages. 1 saying can't open +, and another saying can't open 480.

I recall having this issue when installing on FC6, but I cannot recall how it was resolved.

Any and all help appreciated

How are you starting the program?
Perhaps you can just unpack your 1.4.2 in it's own folder rather than run the installer.
I like to do /opt/jdk ...

Usually fedora has it's JRE something like this:
[jpowell@tc4400 logs]$ which java

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 2008-07-16 07:54 /usr/bin/java -> /etc/alternatives/java
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 2008-09-21 12:59 /etc/alternatives/java -> /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.6.0-openjdk/bin/java

You might try launch it with $PATH_TO_YOUR_1.4.2JRE/java ... or you may need to set JRE_HOME / JAVA_HOME to the appropriate path.
