Unhappy Redhat 8.0 / java plugin


Currenly running redhat 8.0 with mozilla only, no netscape. Downloaded Java runtime from sun, and had it installed. i'm not sure if its just me, but it didn't have a mozilla plugin, so i used the /plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so to symbolic link to my mozilla 1.0.1's plugin directory. But still not able to see any java on my mozilla. I've tried re-loading mozilla multiple of times, as i heard it takes more then once for the plugin to take affect. Any help will be appreciated. If i didn't make myself clear, please ask and i'll try to elaborate my problem more clearly. Thank you

-
The test java applet on the pages doesn't load and says this applet requires the java plugin. The only some java applets seems to be working

about:plugins

This displays the plugins that your browser is able to handle.

And that page you have linked there, it says I don't have it either, which is odd because all my java related websites work great. I'd have to say not to worry about it as long as your java sites are actually working, it might be a problem on their end, or something to that nature; you might wanna email the webmaster about it, see if they've got some knowledge to share.

Cool

Thanks for the help, i guess i was just being over conserned. All of my java applications works great on any other site, expect that one, which was my main consern. I though i might of done something wrong and problem would be aparent in other sites as well but it wasn't as far as i can tell, so i'm quite content. Well thanks again.

hmm... maybe someone should email root@java.sun.com and tell them him/her that he/she is wrong. I too have the latest java plugin and sdk since I develop in java. hmm... weird.

Redhat 8.0 is build on gcc 3.2 (as SuSE 8.1)

The Javaruntime from SUN is build on gcc 2.x. These two compilerversions produce incompatible binarycode. This leads to the problem that Mozilla (or any other browser) from the distribution cannot load the plugin for java..

You all have to wait until SUN compiles there JVM with gcc 3.2. Until this happens you may download the prebuild binary from Mozilla (but this often leads to problems with the RPM-Database). A better way is to download an unpack the prebuild Version of Phoenix unpack it with tar x
fz to /usr/local and remove the pluginfolder with rm -r plugins.

Then make a link from your local Mozilla-Pluginfolder where the javalibrary resides (e.g. ln -d /opt/mozilla/plugins /usr/local/phoenix/plugins).

You may then start Phoenix with /usr/local/phoenix/phoenix and enjoy Java
