I am a linux newbie and i have been trying to set up a java runtime enviroment under fedora core 3.
I installed the j2sdk-1.4.2_08 RPM in self extracting file. the rpm.bin file.
This installed java in the following directory.
when i run the command /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_08/bin/java -version
i get the correct output
java version "1.4.2_08"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_08-b03)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2_08-b03, mixed mode)
however when i run the java -version command without providing the path i get the following output
This script is a placeholder for the /usr/bin/java
master link required by jpackage.org conventions. libgcj's
rmiregistry, rmic and jar tools are now slave symlinks to these
masters, and are managed by the alternatives(8) system.
This change was necessary because the rmiregistry, rmic and jar tools
installed by previous versions of libgcj conflicted with symlinks
installed by jpackage.org JVM packages.
gij (GNU libgcj) version 3.4.2 20041017 (Red Hat 3.4.2-6.fc3)

There seems to be a conflicting version of java. I tried creating a file java.sh in the /etc/profile.d directory.
I would like to make my install of java the default java runtime enviroment, so that when i run the command java it points to the /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_08 directory.
how is this accomplished. appreciate any help.
