Does anyone know how to get rid of this evil blood sucking monster called java 1.5 beta?

Just a few days ago I used to think that Cas's comments of "hang them by the toenails" about the stupid stupid gits at sun who wrote the 1.5 webstart were extreme and uncalled for.

Cas - hey, man, I'm sorry. You were right all along. These people do deserve to suffer! Any poor sod who installs 1.5 beta is in danger of serious trouble with their code. It's like a virus!

Not only is it FUBAR'd, not only does it's webstart version seize control of the entire linux desktop, steal keypresses, steal focus, and make it almost impossible to shut down the evil thing, but it also pushes out the perfectly working correct java 1.4 JRE's webstart, deletes all the cached jars, and steals them for itself. Never before in my life have I used any serious piece of sofware where the buggy-as-an-ant-farm beta actually secretly,deliberately, and silently knocked-out and emasculated the previous gold release. This is the kind of thing I didn't think even MS had the balls to do these days Sad.

I didn't even use an RPM install, I used the "plain" installer and it still raped me.

I fear that simply deleting it will NOT restore any of the things it shouldn't have touched but has broken, so ... is my only choice to delete ALL JVM's and re-install from scratch?

[Thanks, Sun! Really appreciate what you're doing to my machine. All I can say is I am extremely relieved I had already banned any Sun betas from our work machines, or we could have had some serious trouble with this ****.]

ouch

well, it looks like you've found a solution, so this is just a warning, not a request for help?

Enjoy.

I don't have a solution - I'm still suffering with no webstart Sad on each occasion that the broken 1.5 webstart app decides to crash before even letting the 1.4.x VM get a look-in Sad.

Yeah, I'm curious as to why that's a problem?  It's not like reinstalling JVM is a huge task.  Is it?

I recently reinstalled Java, after removing the whole freaking thing.  Updated to 1.5 myself, thinking it would make certain demos work.  Actually, I think my video card just sucks, but I'm still using the beta java and it seems to run everything just fine.

Coming back to this...

Re-installing 1.4.2 does NOT fix the problem. You do get webstart back, but you don't get your cache back. Stupid ^£"$!"£$%"£ing 1.5 still "0wn3rz" it.

Worse, JNLP links now RANDOMLY use 1.5.0 beta2 some of the time - and I can't see a way to stop them. Sob. I checked the JNLP's, and they do NOT require 1.5, so I don't know why (or even how) the 1.5 webstart is being found and used.
