New to linux
I just installed j2sdk in Linux redhat. I installed the files in /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.0
The above directory contains
jre , lib , inlcude etc.

I use .bash_profile to set my PATH and here are some entries

PATH=$PATH:$HOME/BIN:.
BASH_ENV=$HOME/.bashrc
USERNAME:root

How should configure to make javac work.

Thanks

Try adding the following as well:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$JAVA_HOME/lib

JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.0
PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin:$JAVA_HOME:$JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/i386:.
CLASS_PATH==/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.0/lib/i386
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$CLASSPATH
BASH_ENV=$HOME/.bashrc
USERNAME:root

I am getting the same erros from javac

Error : could not find Java 2 Runtime Environment

Remove that CLASSPATH entry.
And try replace the one below it with:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$JAVA_HOME/lib/i386

WHich dir is libjava.so actually in?
(And include that directory in LD_LIBRARY_PATH).

libjava.so is in

/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.0/jre/lib/i386

is there any way I can tell javac where to find the library using the command line.

Thanks

Try adding /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.0/jre/lib/i386 to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
