.bin files

I downloaded some programs for Linux, and they are in ".bin" files. How do I install them? Thanks.

I am using RedHat 8.0 and KDE 3.03

usually "./filename.bin" from the terminal

you may need to "chmod +x filename.bin" first

I followed your instructions and got left with an RPM file from the extraction. (It is the install file for JRE 1.3.1)

I executed the RPM file, but I seem to have lost whatever it installed. Where can I find it? I think I might have to do something with "PATH environment variable," but I don't know what.

I need to get JRE to work in order to use LimeWire. Without LimeWire, I can't get MP3s. :cry:

Don't execute the rpm files. Do this instead

$ su

(in order to become root)

and then:

# rpm -Uvh filename.rpm
