I don't know what to tell you anymore. Have you tried it with the java plugin from sun.com? I don't know anything about this Blackdown java version.

It's funny you mentioned this. I was beginning to believe the plugin was bad, so I just downloaded the sun 1.4.1.02 sdk. Wow, 40 megs. I'm goning to delete blackdown and try suns. Thanks for all your help.

Ok, back to square one.

I uninstalled Blackdown jre-1.4.1-01-linux-i586-gcc3.2.bin, the latest release. I upgraded to Red Hat 9, but did not install RedHat's Mozilla, since I was already on 1.3. The upgrade went smooth.

Tried to re-install Blackdown. It went smooth, but now the Java Web Start will not install, and I still have no browser support.

Has anyone gotten Blackdown to work in RedHat 8 or 9, or is it just a faulty product?

Thanks

Yeah.. I've preferred Blackdown's version over Sun's for a LONG time. I've used it with Konqueror 3.03, Mozilla (almost all of 'em), and Galeon 1.2.9 on my RedHat 8.0 box.

Good Luck

Ok!

A ways back in this thread nakkaya sent me a url for http://members.shaw.ca/trollking/linux.html. I just went there, and low and behold, DETAILED instructions on installing Sun's SDK. I tried it, and with RedHat 9, Mozilla 1.3 and Evolution 1.2.4 ALL is working great.

Just goes to show, if you want Java, go to the source (Sun).

Thanks nakkaya!
