    Hi *,

    while installing java on Linux I got symlink errors errors each time a
    symlink was tried out:

    .. . .
    creating: jdk1.5.0_05/jre/lib/i386/server/
    inflating: jdk1.5.0_05/jre/lib/i386/server/libjvm.so
    inflating: jdk1.5.0_05/jre/lib/i386/server/Xusage.txt
    linking: jdk1.5.0_05/jre/lib/i386/server/libjsig.so ->
    .../libjsig.so
    creating: jdk1.5.0_05/jre/lib/i386/client/
    inflating: jdk1.5.0_05/jre/lib/i386/client/libjvm.so
    inflating: jdk1.5.0_05/jre/lib/i386/client/Xusage.txt
    linking: jdk1.5.0_05/jre/lib/i386/client/libjsig.so ->
    .../libjsig.so
    .. . .
    creating: jdk1.5.0_05/jre/javaws/
    linking: jdk1.5.0_05/jre/javaws/javaws -> ../bin/javaws
    .. . .
    creating: jdk1.5.0_05/man/
    .. . .
    linking: jdk1.5.0_05/man/ja -> ja_JP.eucJP

    why is this happening?

    Thanks

    The output you showed did not include any errors, hence Gordon's question.

    What do you *think* is the problem?

    OK, it wasn't totally evident
    ..
    I did redirected the output to a file but errors are still printed on
    the screen.
    ..
    Then I counted the symlink attempts and they were exactly the same as
    the number of errors on the screen that is why I correlated them both
    based on nature of the errors and count
    ..
    is there a way to provide you with more debug info while going:
    ../jdk-1_5_0_<version>-linux-i586.bin ?
    ..
    Why are these errors happening?

    Redirect both standard out and standard error:

    ../jdk-1_5_0_<version>-linux-i586.bin > file 2>&1

    Where have you asked it to install the JDK?

    Well, I tried

    ../jdk-1_5_0_05-linux-i586.bin > file 2>&1

    after spacing out of the License Agreement and entering 'y' to start
    installation I got a total of actually 4 symlink errors, each and every
    time the compilation tried linking a file or directory

    FYI, I am using knoppix and installing java on an externa drive

    Is there anyoher piece of info you need from me?
