java version "1.3.0"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.0)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.0, mixed mode)
After an "out-of-the-box" install of the Java 2 SDK version 1.3 on my Linux
machine I couldn't run any binaries from the jdk1.3/bin or jdk1.3/jre/bin
directories. The machine is an Intel Pentium 4 and here is the uname output:
Linux 2.2.16 #5 Wed Feb 7 15:49:36 PST 2001 i?86 unknown
The error I got when trying to invoke any of the binaries was:
Error: can't find libjava.so.
This was the case for any command issued in the java environment.
The problem is in the .java_wrapper script. In order to find the lib directory
in the jre directory it sets up the $proc variable with proc="`uname -m`" if
i[3-6]86 (and others) aren't found. So for my machine it sets up $proc as "i?86"
and therefore it can't find libjava.so because the directory it is searching
does not exist.

tried both the rpm and gnuzip installations, both did this. Never had a
problem with 1.4 beta1. Fresh linux install, beat 1 was not available.1.3
