I haven't installed Java under Linux but I do recognize the error.

can't resolve symbol '__lib_malloc'

means that the linker cannot find a library, specifically libmalloc.a

This library, is part of the C/C++ language development distribution. Did you install the development components?

Thank for jpk and czmadio.
After I had installed the libc5218,ldso1810 and libXt,jdk 102
I ran java or javac, it had
a error message
  /usr/local/java/bin/../bin/i586/java:
  can't resolve symbol '__libc_malloc'

Did I haven't  something  to do?

Then I can't solve the error message
    can't resolve symbol '__libc_malloc',
when run java.
1. I find my Linux 1.2.13
2. cpio --version 2.3
   ( In REDHAT,it is required with 2.4 )
   rpm -install JDK-1.0.2.rpm
   Segmentation default
3. Why can't resolve __libc_malloc?

Now,I have the following questions:
1.Where can I get cpio ver 2.4?
2.Is it true that no unarchives rpm make
      the error message?
I am so sad about my mind.
Hope any suggestions.
I think I must sleep.
Hope you can tell me an easy rule to install Java
in Linux.

Recomendation, upgrade to RedHat4.0 or later then use the ncftp to ftp.redhat.com then use the following command

site exec locate JDK

take not of the location of the package, then exit to your prompt
then use this:

rpm -i <location of the packacge>

remember, upgrade to a newer distribution of RedHat it's better supported and this messages will not apear again.

You have probably incorrect version of libc.
There is minimum required libc version in some
README in Linux JDK package.
