Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Even though I have GCC 3.2 the mozilla I'm running is a prebuilt. I couldn't get the blackdown gcc3.2 jre to work. So I downloaded the gcc2.95 blackdown. That javaplugin file seems to work as apparently the jre gcc version has to match what version mozilla was built with. So download both and see which one works.
yet another entry in the saga that is my browser and its plugins. Now that java is working Flash is not. The plugin page still lists the flash plugin as installed and associated with application/x-shockwave-flash but whenever I go to a webpage I get a popup saying that I need a plugin to handle x-shockwave-flash... is anyone else getting this?
scratch that... took a reinstall and then I had to create a symlink for libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3 to libstdc++.so
this whole plugin thing is an odd setup.
but hey at least both java and flash work now. (I hope all this rambling of mine helps someone out there... sorry if it doesn't.)
now my RadHat crashed . It was supose to be such a good friday morning . I went to work, turn on the PC with the RH and when it starts loading, there was a message that RH could not load the X server. Some font missing or something like that. I'm so maaaad!!!
I've just reinstalled the system, cos I'm a . NOw I'm trying to install the blackdown java plug-in, but I can't find the dir of mozilla browser. I've downloaded the sdk1.4.1 gcc3.2 and now my mozilla is v1.0.1. Is this a problem? Nevermind I'll find out soon
no, it didn't work, I've installed the mozilla 1.4 and didn't work for it too. There is no error message in the terminal, it just don't work. Please can somebody tell me is there a browser for RedHat8 that is with java support???? Anything Opera, Mozilla, NS, IE or something...
hrmm.. I have the same exact problem as above, but..
Im using the blackdown version upon suggestion elsewhere on the forum..
here is a paste of my errors..
[mike@ts1 mozilla-1.3.1]$ run-mozilla.sh

guster... so Mozilla 1.4 crashes still with both blackdown versions? with both mozilla1.4+blackdown2.95 and mozilla1.4+blackdown3.2 you get the undefined nsServiceManager symbol? Can anyone help in this matter?
I'm very sorry guster I have to admit that I'm not too experienced with mozilla plugin problems. Have you had any luck at the mozilla or blackdown mailing lists?
scoob... glad to hear you're up and running. Might want to look into the undefined symbol though... it can't be good.
At last it works!!!! I don't know how I've manage to do it, but it realy works this time. On Mozilla 1.0.1 with Blackdown1.4.1gcc2.95. Finaly I can run my test on Linux to see how the product is handeling in this environment. It took me 2 weeks to install the stupid java 10x to everybody, you're the best
