Help with Java error page!


BTW, I'm using etch.

When I install the later edition of Sun-Java6 with synaptic.
Then I go test it using konquorer browser at:

http://java.com/en/download/help/testvm.xml

The test failed, no dancing little Java stickman!

During the test I see a small icon appear on lower right
corner of browser and I clicked on it and get this error message.

Error:

~~~~

Please, can someone tell me what it's trying to
tell me? and maybe I can figure out what went
wrong to fail the Java test.

According to "All" the post and "All" the websites
I have been to trying to learn how to install Java
it should be working okay.

As root, after installing sun-Java6 with synaptic
I ran this from the command line:

update-alternatives --config Java

and then did a version check, it was okay.

then I did a version check as user it was okay also.

Next I followed the instructions on the Sun site:

- Enable Java through your Web browser
"My browser(konquorer) was not listed".

- Enable Java through the "Java Plug-in Control Panel"
I checked it and it was already enabled.

- Clearing your Web Browser Cache
I cleaned the cache, and tried again.

BTW, when I get to Suns site and the page starts to load
it says down on the left lower status bar:

applet "" started

and it shows in the window where the applet should be
running:

Loading Applet

I have uninstalled and re-install, and re-did all the above
so many times over a four day period. Stopped for Christmas
and now I'm at the end of day 5.

HELP PLEASE!

Thanks in advance for being able to post and all your help!

IIRC, only Mozilla-built browsers are supported. The easiest solution is to use Firefox and the Java browser plugin.
