Subject RE: Installing Ant on Linux Enterprise 3.5
Date Mon, 22 May 2006 18:01:08 GMT
I believe there is an Ant rpm that ships with RHEL 3.5. To find out for
sure run:

rpm -qa | grep -I ant

Uninstall the rpm. Also searh the list archives for related threads. I
know this sort of thing has come up before.
