I'm trying to install java, and what I thought you do is just to extract the binaries/files from the .tar , and move it to the binaries folder in /usr/bin .I've scoured the forums and have found this similar post to the problem I'm having: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1724227.
When I do #java -version, I get " java: error while loading shared libraries: libjli.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory "
Unlike the previous post, I am on a more basic linux kernel than the Ubunutu build (so I don't have the sudo update-alternatives --install) option. What do I do to install it?
Thanks for any help!
