1. Release of Sun(tm)'s Java(tm) Development Kit Beta 1.0 for Linux

I obtained the required files and have most things working

The .java_wrapper script does not execute properly on
my RedHat Linux bash.  The line:

PRG=`which $0` >/dev/null 2>&1

does not execute the "which $0" command correctly.
An "echo $PRG" inserted after this line yields the
following upon execution of any of the symbolic links
to this file (./javac temp):

which: no ./javac in (/usr/local/bin:...etc...:/usr/local/java/bin)


dirname: too many arguments looks like a problem with bash to me.  Any similar
experiences or helpful comments?
