I just installed Arch on an alternative machine. Took me a little under five hours from first boot from the net install to workable system and so far, I am pleased.
in Arch is getting happier...
Recap: I am looking for a distro that has a longer life cycle (posed the question in the forum - that's where I found out about Arch) as opposed to Fedora. That is great but changes too fast to be workable for me...
Ok, so I got this thing rolling. I use Firefox and would like to use the Sun jre in Firefox, but leave the openjdk intact for eclipse.
I already installed/unpacked the jre in the /usr/share folder and have a link to the plugin in the /home/t01/.mozilla/plugins folder. Upon check of the available plugins, the Sun JRE does not pop up in the list.
How do I fix this?
I tried to install the alternatives configurator
but - would ya know - that didnt work...
Please shed some light, thanks.
