If you are new to linux, you can refer the Linux Manual on how to install a program from an rpm file. (Google for it! )

For eclipse, it is just a matter of unzipping the files to some selected folder.

For the Java red hat package:

i) Log in as root
ii) type

RPM should then install Java.

As Stuart said just unzip the eclipse-SDK-3.1M4-linux-motif.zip file. you should then find the eclipse executable in the YOURPATH/eclipse directory.

On Gentoo, here's what I do.

execute the java bin you downloaded from Sun...which basically just extracts it to a folder.

Put that folder in /opt.

Create the file /etc/env.d/20java - put this in it (edit to your liking)



reboot.

As for eclipse...unzip it and execute it...you should be good to go.

If you use your variables, you don't need to fear updates:


Well, and we don't need to


reboot.



should be sufficient, while on my linux it would be /etc/init.d/java and a link to the runlevels /etc/rcX.d/S20java.
