Got problem when trying to install JDK5.0 on linux
Joined: Jan 07, 2005
I downloaded JDK 5.0 update 1 linux self-extracting file: jdk-1_5_0_01-linux-i586.bin, and use chmod to make it executable. But after I run jdk-1_5_0_01-linux-i586.bin and say 'yes' to the license agreement question, I got the following error msg: usage: tail [+/-[n][lbc][f]] [file] tail [+/-[n][l][r|f]] [file] jdk-1_5_0_01-linux-i586.bin: test: argument expected
I checked installation instructions from sun web site, and it doesn't mention anything about argument. Since it's my first time installing Java on linux platform, really don't know what else I should do to make the installation successful.
