View Full Version : Having trouble installing a jdk from sun

August 26th, 2006, 04:37 PM
I'm new to Ubuntu, but not linux. Until now I have mainly used Gentoo, and perhaps got too used to it's ways of manually installing programs. I'm a Java programmer and right now I'm currently using windows XP and ubuntu on a dual boot machine. I would much love to make that computer purely ubuntu however I've been running into problems setting up the newest sun jdk, netbeans (because of the jdk problem) and I haven't even tried to get apache, php and mysql installed yet.

If anyone knows of a guide or knows how to get the sun-jdk 5 or preferably new 6 beta installed it would be a great help.

Thanks very much.

I'm going to keep trying to figure this out while I wait for some responses.


PS: I really like UBuntu so far. Seems like a great distro and community! Good work

Thank you for the quick reply. With this information I have decided to rid myself of windows :) At least on my programming PC, I still use windows on my gaming computer :( Damn Oblivion ! lol
