I've download and installed the .rpm.bin file for the java vm from www.java.com
I've followed the instructions here:
i installed it at /usr/java/
[ninja@Fedora ninja]$ ls -l /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_04/plugin/i386
drwxr-xr-x 2 root bin 4096 Jun 4 18:30 ns4
drwxr-xr-x 2 root bin 4096 Jun 4 18:30 ns610
drwxr-xr-x 2 root bin 4096 Jun 4 18:30 ns610-gcc32
[ninja@Fedora ninja]$ ls /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins -l

by default mozilla is installed at /usr/lib/mozilla/ dir right? its mozilla 1.6 by the way. there was only mozilla folder.
My install of fedora is with everything. defaults I have not changed anything that I aware of that would stop my java to work with mozilla.
I checked that the plugin for java is exabled for the advanced settings.
I had the broswer open though while doing the install because i had to follow the instructions from the java website. did anyone else have this similar problem? I didnt get no errors though. just vm not working.
