Hi experts

Double boot - WIn XP Pro / Ubuntu 7.10
I started  as follows:

chmod +x jdk-6u3-linux-i586.bin
./jdk-6u3-linux-i586.bin

.. accepted the  license agreement
... and I got the following screen:

Unpacking ...
Checksumming ...
./jdk-6u3-linux-i586.bin: 371: ./install.sfx.8765: not found
Failed to extract the files. Please refer to the Troubleshooting section..

Do you have write permission to the directory?   Have you tried doing it as sudo?

sudo ./jdk-6u3-linux-i586.bin

accepted the license agreement and got the same message with install.sfx

Try another version of jdk. When I tried to install the one with integrated NetBeans it didn't work but the standalone one did.

I downloaded the same file and it ran to completion for me (see box).

Possibly your download terminated before the complete file was received. Download it again if the file size or md5sum differ from those in the box.


Do you agree to the above license terms? [yes or no]

It was so simple and worked perfect. I downloaded only jdk without netbeans.
Thanks
