Need help installing NetBeans

Hi everyone. I have suse 11.1 with kde 4.1 and decided to install
NetBeans IDE 6.5 the full package not just Java SE, so I downloaded
first the jdk package from ‘Java SE Downloads - Sun Developer Network
(SDN)’ (http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp) and installed
it.Afterwards I downloaded the ide installer from
http://www.netbeans.org/downloads/index.html, but I got the problem
during the installation, because the installer it self didn’t recognize
the jdk I have previously installed, so I tried to point to it manually.
Executing the
Code:

rpm -ql java-1_6_0-openjdk


showed me that the majority of files were put in /usr/lib/jvm/ folder,
but I just can’t point to the right folder of the jdk, so that the
installer of ide could read it. Maybe I should have added the path of
jdk installed to my path variable, so that the installer of ide could
detect it automaticaly.This is my current root user path
Code:

inux-e685:~ # echo $PATH
/usr/lib/mpi/gcc/openmpi/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/sbin:/root/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/bin/X11:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/games:/opt/kde3/bin:/usr/lib/mit/bin:/usr/lib/mit/sbin:/usr/NX/bin


. Any help will be higly appreciated.

Thanks malcolmlewis, can you tell where that is? I did not want to
intall it via yast since the version there is a little older, 6.0 I
guess, and also don’t know if it contains all technologies available, I
mean PHP,C++ etc. and not just the pure Java SE. Thanks again.

Hi
It’s version 6.5, via YaST software repositories click the add button
and select community, then the Education one save and exit. Then use
the software tool to search on netbeans. Else go here;
Get It
and search on netbeans.

Thanks for the guidance malcolmlewis, I got it installed successfully,
but unfortunatelly it won’t run, it says “Cannot find java. Please use
the --jdkhome switch.”, grrr, I guess I’m again at the begining of this
thing. For some reason the correct folder hasn’t been added to the PATH
variable, so I gues I must adjust that somehow. Any ideas maybe? Thanks

It’s working finally. There were two libraries missing: openjdk-src and
openjdk-devel, after installing that via yast, everything ok :slight_smile:
