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.

I have installed the java plugin on Mozilla 1.5, 've made the symbolic link in plugins directory to libjavaplugin_oji.so and it seems to give me no problem when i start mozilla, but when i engage a web site with some java applet it shows me the message that tells me to download java plugin, as i didn't have it.
What could be the motivaytion?
THANKS A LOT
I have tried to use that version of java plugin too, but nothing to do.
To load plugin i create a symbolic link to libjavaplugin_jni.so in mozilla plugin directory as written on installation guide, but applet doesn't work. When i make an hard link or i copy that file it gives me this message:
LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library /home/mrmojo/sof/mozilla/plugins/libjava.so [libjvm.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory]
I FIND LINUX VERY HARD TO USE BUT I KNOW THAT THE FOULT IS JUST OF THAT SLAYER CALLED WINDOW
1.4.2 and nothing to do, i believe that i've made some foolish during installation of mozilla or during installation of java plugins and now i'm out, it doesn't matter, i am learning a lot of things and i am happy of this......
check which version of mozilla you're actually using. i've seen this so many times with people opening mozilla using the mozilla command thinking that when they installed moz 1.5 that it opens using the same command. moz 1.5 defaults to install in /usr/local/mozilla/ and to run it you need to run the command /usr/local/mozilla/mozilla. my bet is that you've installed mozilla 1.5 but when you run mozilla, you're still using an older version of mozilla. also make a symbolic link into /usr/local/mozilla/plugins and not into your $HOME/.mozilla/plugins.
May be I had the similar problem
After installation of j2sdk1.4.2 and creating all the necessary links in "~/.mozilla/plugins" Mozilla actually doesn't show that it has java-plugin.
In my case the problem was that mozilla could not find a file "libgcc_s.so.1".
Fortunately this library was already somewhere in my system (use "locate libgcc_s.so" to find in yours).
Solution was simple - I just put this file into a folder where mozilla was installed (in my case it is "/opt/mozilla/". There are also files "run-mozilla.sh" etc.). After that I went in menu "Help->About Plug-ins" and enjoyed the view Java plug-ins are found and usable.
Running Mozilla 1.5 and J2RE 1.4.2_03-b02 on a RedHat 2.4.20-24.8smp kernel. After the JRE install I had to "chmod -R og+rX <mozilla root>/lib <mozilla root>/plugins" to allow all users access (root umask of 037). Once that was done, the plugin appeared in the "About Plugins" page for all users. Problem is the plugin doesn't work uniformly even for root. High level functions such as openwindow (look at www.mbna.com at the "GO" button for services logins) work for root only; no action and no logs are evident for this action with all non-root users. Functions requiring lower level library calls don't work at all (j2re clock demo from Sun, specific to the J2RE 1.4.2 release), even for root (Mozilla states that the plugin is required. I've verified that the release tag in the java applet(s) do match the installed JRE, and that userland mozilla configuration and java plugin associations are identical between root and at least one non-root test user. Anybody have an idea what else I should check?
Got a solution for part of the problem. Hypothetically (not that I would be so bone-headed as to forget about this, nosireebob) it *might* (see previous comment) have been ... cache. Clear it and restart mozilla, and java tests (two follow) start working:
present in /root/.mozilla/pluginreg.dat but missing from all other accounts. Oddly enough, the other 31 entries associated with java and the JRE in /root/.mozilla/pluginreg.dat didn't seem to have an effect on high-level java functions such as jumpMenu() and the like (the sort of things you expect to find in HTML host-side redirects). I didn't see any java associations in root's pluginreg.dat that shouldn't be global, so I just added all of them to all user account pluginreg.dat files. Works fine now.
All of you that sent emails on this, thanks! Cleaned the problem up very nicely.
ok, i have mozilla and jdk 1.4.2. both have to be installed. i did it in the gui(gnome), to make it simple. ok. theres jre inside the install of jdk. its in a folder labeled jre. there, there is a folder called plugins. i forgot what it was called and im too lazy too open another browser, but theres 3 folders. theres one that ends on gcc32, open that. theres a .so there. right click it and select make link to. then open a new browser, and go into your netscape folder. go then into plugins folder. move the link of the java .so(this is not the name of the plugin), to the plugin folder of netscape. take off the link to in the name of the plugin. there you go.
if ur confused, just tryit, and ull figure it out.
