Installation problem in Debian squeeze

Hi
recently i downloaded the JRuby 1.6.1 Complete
.jarhttp://jruby.org.s3.amazonaws.com/downloads/1.6.1/jruby-complete-1.6.1.jarpackage
and tried to install in using the command java -jar JRuby
1.6.1 Complete
.jarhttp://jruby.org.s3.amazonaws.com/downloads/1.6.1/jruby-complete-1.6.1.jarbut
i could not install it because there was no response. i mean i waited
like 10min but there was no window or there was a activity. After that i
just closed the shell. Using the same command i installed scala and
jython
and there was no problem . I have sun java 1.6.21.
Please can anyone tell me am i doing something wrong or there is some
problem with the package ?.

with regards.

use the binary distribution
http://jruby.org.s3.amazonaws.com/downloads/1.6.1/jruby-bin-1.6.1.tar.gz
unpack it and start it as described in http://jruby.org/getting-started

the complete jar is a jar and you get an “ruby” command with “java
-jar JRuby 1.6.1 Complete .jar” so “java -jar JRuby 1.6.1 Complete
.jar -help” will tell you more.

jython.Thanks for your help.
