You said that you downloaded this package: jre-6u3-linux-i586.bin
With this package, You will have to do a little extra work. You should have read the installation instructions.
Let's begin with the installation.

Step 1: Install:
1. Copy the installer to the directory where you want to install JAVA. I used the directory /usr/local/lib for myself. You can choose any directory you like. Let's assume that you chose the directory /usr/local/lib.
2. cd to that directory:

Code: Select all

cd /usr/local/lib

3. become root:

Code: Select all

su

4. Change the permission of the file you downloaded to be executable:

Code: Select all

chmod a+x jre-6u3-linux-i586.bin

5. Start the installation:

Code: Select all

./jre-6u3-linux-i586.bin

6. JAVA Runtime Environment will be installed in a subdirectory with a name like jre1.5.0_11
The installation is complete now.

Step 2: Configure your browser:
I assume that you are using the Firefox browser.
1. cd to the plugins directory under Firefox installation directory. For example:

Code: Select all

cd /usr/lib/firefox/plugins

2. Enter the following command to create a symbolic link to the Java Plug-in for the Firefox browser:

Code: Select all

ln -s /usr/local/lib/jre1.5.0_11/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

3. Restart Firefox and type this in the address bar:

Code: Select all

about:plugins

You will see JRE in the list.

CHANGE THE NAMES OF THE FILES AND DIRECTORIES ACCORDING TO YOUR OWN SYSTEM.

I agree with some installation points, but not agree with paths and filename, you again check your howto.

That is why I have written that he should change the paths according to his own system.
Please correct me if I could not understand what you want to say.
