ARGH! Java Wont INstalL!


Ok, I downloaded the binary for Java's Runtime Environment, I need Java installed on this box. Followed all instructions. JAVA itself is installed on the machine, but I cant get the plugin to work for my browser. MoZilla help says to enable it in preferences which I did, and it still says that the Java Plugin does not exist. Is there anything to make this easier?

Oh my goodness MasterC your at it again. Do you work for gentoo or slackware?

P.S. I just downloaded and burned gentoo to cd. I'm ready to go.

Me too. I've never done Gentoo before, but I figure it's worth a shot since I talk it up all over the forums

Now that I've got my server up (pfft, without any RAM though) I don't need to worry about testing out new distros. So here I go with a Gentoo install!


Cool

Below is my symbolic link to the java plug-in under plugins directory.
libjavaplugin_oji.so -> /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.1_01/jre/plugin/i386/ns600/libjavaplugin_oji.so
[/code]

Sun also has another step to look under Help > About Plug-ins in Netscape or Mozilla. If you see JAVA then JAVA should be working.

Also look at http://www.justlinux.com/ for more instructions for JAVA.
