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.

so, as the search function has no matches for x-java-vm, here is my problem:
i tried alls the icqpendants i found (gaim, licq, centericq, ...) but nothing worked... so i tried http://go.icq.com , but it asks for a plug-in from a type called "application/x-java-vm" and i don't know what to do... i installes sun java by following these instructions
but that didn't work either
OK, I'm doing a little guessing here, but you probably need to set up your Java parameters correctly. Check out this thread where I've explained how to set up the PATH and JAVA_HOME variables.
What you may have to do in addition to that is set up a link to Java plugin for each program that needs to use it. You'll have to read the documentation for those programs to find out what directory to put the link in , but the link itself is usually something like:
hm it's similar to what i did with one exception: i did not use the rpm package, but the self extracting file:
First, create (as root) a "java" subdirectory in the /usr directory. Download the self-extracting (not RPM) file of j2re-1_4_2 from Sun. Move (as root) the file to /usr/java. Cd (as root) to the /usr/java and issue the following 2 commands:
then i performed these commands in the terminal like instructed in Tuvok's post:
well i looked at this thread but i do not understand... i downlaoded java again as rpm, but ist also was a bin-file... i am really confused and do not know what to do now... i also do not understand this thing with the /etc/profile file... ist has entries i don't understand and i am afraid of killing this file by adding something frong at the wrong place... this is the third time i tried to get java working but it does not wand
First, are you sure you installed java correctly? You should be able to find the java directory in your /usr directory, although it may bin in /usr/local if you installed from binary.
Second, in a console, type java -version. If you get anything that suggests the computer can't find java, then you need to set up your PATH and JAVA_HOME.
Third, if you don't feel comfortable messing with /etc/profile, you can create the same commands in your .bashrc file (you can create one if you don't have one, just be sure to have #!/bin/bash as your first line.
Lastly, what browser are you using? You need to find out where to put the plugin link for your browser.
[root@localhost root]# java -version
java version "1.3.1"
jdkgcj 0.2.3 (http://www.arklinux.org/projects/jdkgcj)
gcj (GCC) 3.2.2 20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5)

3. I'll have a look for it when I wake up today
lastly, I'm using Mozilla 1.2.1 and i already tried the commands like tuvok says in his thread to link to my plug-in dir, but i didn't work i think.
