hey there, i installed jdk 1.7 downloaded from oracle(which is a rpm file). i changed the .bashprofile to add the JAVAHOME and CLASSPATH like this:

JAVAHOME=/usr/java/jdk1.7.006 export JAVA_HOME


CLASSPATH=.:$JAVAHOME/lib/dt.jar:$JAVAHOME/lib/tools.jar export CLASSPATH

and i reboot. but when i try:

java -version

the following will be displayed:

bash: /usr/java/jdk1.7.0_06/bin/java: /lib/ bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory

then i tried :

su -c 'yum install glibc.i686'

and will lead to:

Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto,
refresh-packagekit Resolving

consider running
yum-complete-transaction first to
finish them.
--> Running transaction check

glibc-2.15-51.fc17.i686 !=

so what' wrong?

btw, when i installed the java, before 'complete', it told me something also bad ELF interpreter

i would appreciate it if you can provide an solution. and forgive my poor English.
