that nonsense makes it easier for me to describe it, sure a great idea

anyway i have fc4 with a recent update (same b4 i believe in terms of this) to 1.639 smp kernel
all three browsers do not work with java
so i looked at some uRls, such as
h t t p: / / plugindoc.mozdev .org /faqs /java.h tml#Win32

which i now had to insert spaces into, to be able to mention it here, and tried those dures, i .e. i got the sun java 1.5, installed it (and can start its console too), and tried the link settign stuff explained in the url, with a path tailored to my java distrib ( i found that the pathname did not go to something like plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so but plugin/i386/ns7_gcc29/libjavaplugin_oji.so or something
when i did that, the browser would no longer start, so i removed the link

doing java -version will return java 1.4.2 something
doing gcc --version will return gcc 4.0.1
and the java console is for 1.5.1_05, it will show as the java browser mozilla (which i installed as an add on)
also, the browser options will say "java enabled".
any website using java, will miss it though (i also tried installing java from within the browser)
my suspicion is that there was a version of java 1.4 present from the base install, which was not properly linked to the browser.
so how would it seem i will get this to work ?

wow, you're not impressed by the url filter huh??

To be honest, i don't know what the java console package is suppose to provide, all you should need to do is create a symlink from the mozilla libjavaplugin_oji.so in whichever JRE / J2SDK you have already got installed. no other packages should be needed at all.

Maybe you have installed the java-gcc package when you install your FC4. That's why when you type java -version on the console, you get the version of 1.4.2 instead of the 1.5 you have installed. To be sure, run this command:

rpm -qa | grep java

If the result of this would be java-gcc...then you have the java-gcc package included in FC4. You need to remove this package by:

rpm -ev java-gcc<version>

After that, try doing the java link again. That should work now.

And when you type java -version on the console, java 1.5 version you installed should be displayed.
