ok i tried the command export OPERA_FORCE_JAVA_ENABLED=1 and java still doesnt work on java site
when i gave ./opera the error i got was
opera: libjava.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
when i gave ./opera -debugjava i got
opera: [java] There seems to be a preloaded version of Xt.
There is a workaround for this problem in the opera
startup script. If that workaround fails, opera will
most likely crash every time it tries to use Java.
The workaround seems to be working.
There is a problem with the order of loading Xt and
Java. If Xt is loaded before libawt (part of Java),
Java will crash when it tries to access the screen.
The workaround is based on using LD_PRELOAD to load
opera: [java] The Java enable flag will not be reset
because the OPERA_FORCE_JAVA_ENABLED environment
variable has been defined.
my jre is jre1.5.0_04 ... maybe that is not compatible with opera 8.02 ?
