How to manually "clean up" java mess

Post by Basher52 » Thu Jul 21, 2011 7:24 am

Seems that my latest install of JDK of Java-1.5 doesn't work correctly and what I can see it seems that different versions of java is installed that might mess it up.
Does anyone know how to manually clean this up and install the latest JDK, whatever that is, so it will work.
Can't seem to find any "uninstall" program for it all so I think I gotta do this manually... or?

I need to install 'ant' for an application but that complains about java.


Using F14.

If you installed it via rpm all you have to do is uninstall it with rpm. I always install the RPM version.

That I know but it seems that some part(s) is not installed through RPM.
I can't recall if I have done something with long time ago.
