I have a fair bit of Windows experience but I am an absolute novice where Apple is concerned. I need to get some software working on a G4 iBook running OSX Tiger 10.4.11. I have no understanding whatsoever of this OS and would be very grateful for a walk-through in baby steps. If this is the wrong place to make such a request, maybe someone could point me in the right direction. What I am trying to do is get Soylatte Java 6 to work on this machine. I have unpacked the software and copied it to the users folder but I cannot seem to get the Export PATH and JAVA_HOME commands to work in Terminal in order to make the system use Java 1.6 instead of 1.5. I have spent a lot of time researching this but that has only served to increase my confusion. It is supposed to be a simple thing to do but I have so little understanding of the way things work that even simple seems to be beyond my grasp. I would really appreciate some help here.
