Sharing Internet Connection in Ubuntu

Setting up a computer to share its internet connection should be easy.After all, you’ve successfully networked your computers together and even shared files with all your home computers, so why not the Internet? Well if you have a small home network of computers all connected and have tried to open up a browser, you’ve probably found out that things aren’t quite as straight forward as connecting one machine with an Ethernet cable to the computer that has the DSL/cable modem.

More on Java Installation

Reconfiguring the default Java configuration for Red Hat / Fedora

This is done as root or equivalent.

First remove /var/lib/alternatives/java file by typing;

rm /var/lib/alternatives/java

When asked press the 'y' key,

Now to create the new (corrected) alternatives file for java type
the following commands as root;

/usr/sbin/alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.4.2-gcj/bin/java 1

For jre:

/usr/sbin/alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java /usr/java/jre1.6.0/bin/java 2

For jdk:

/usr/sbin/alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java /usr/java/jdk1.6.0/jre/bin/java 2

/usr/sbin/alternatives --config java

You should now see for example:

There are 2 programs which provide 'java'.

Selection Command
1 /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.4.2-gcj/bin/java
*+ 2 /usr/java/jre1.6.0/bin/java

Enter to keep the current selection[+], or type selection number:


In the example above java is already configured correctly [*+ 2] to
use Sun's Java, no changes are needed, just press the Enter key here.
If you have been following the instructions then you should have
the same results (version numbers may be sightly different).

Now type; /usr/sbin/alternatives --display java

You should see for example;

java - status is manual.
link currently points to /usr/java/jre1.6.0/bin/java
/usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.4.2-gcj/bin/java - priority 1
/usr/java/jre1.6.0/bin/java - priority 2
Current `best' version is /usr/java/jre1.6.0/bin/java.

Next you might want to create (or edit) /etc/profile.d/
file, examples below:

For jre;

export JAVA_HOME="/usr/java/jre1.6.0/bin"

For jdk;

export JAVA_HOME="/usr/java/jdk1.6.0/jre/bin"

When done creating or editing the file type;

source /etc/profile.d/

Now any user root or other wise should be able to use the command;

which java

and the results should read something like;


Also any user root or other wize should be able to use the command;

java -version

and the results should read something like;

java version "1.6.0"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0-b105)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0-b105, mixed mode, sharing)

That's it, all done.

See not that hard to change.
