As the title says, I would like to install IBM java (from IBM's Java SDK downloads) on WSL. However, the "InstallAnywhere root not required" file creates a folder and so on, but just executing a simple
<path>/java -version command takes several minutes.
Is there an inherent incompatibility or another requirement that creates this problem?
Some background information:
- Windows 10 Enterprise 1703 64 bit
There are no other Java versions installed (in WSL)
WSL reports (
uname -a) Linux computername 4.4.0-43-Microsoft #1-Microsoft Wed Dec 31 14:42:53 PST 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
