    Hi

    I just picked up an Aspire one today and am loving the little thing :)

    Im trying to set it up to run Ventrilo and a nifty little program called maptool

    Ive got Ventrilo running under wine without issue, but for maptool I need to install the JRE.. and it doesnt seem to be working for me.

    Ive Downloaded the file jre-6u7-linux-i586-rpm.bin

    and followed the instructions on the sun site which are as follows

    1)at the terminal type su
    2) enter the root password
    3) change to the directory you want to install to
    4) change the permissions of the file you downloaded: chmod a+x jre-6u7-linux-i586-rpm.bin
    5 start the installation process: /jre-6u7-linux-i586-rpm.bin

    all goes well until step 5 when I type in the command for step 5 it tells me bash: /jre-6u7-linux-i586-rpm.bin: No such file or directory.. and then i am stumped

    anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks

    could it be that you need to type:
    Code:
    ./jre-6u7-linux-i586-rpm.bin
