I have MDK 9.2 and Opera 7.23 which crases on two sites. I have installed the 1.4.2_01.1mdk 57 MB version from the rpm selections in mdk. Opera recognizes it but still the crashes. Got no help from Opera but read some good things about "Blackdown.org Java 1.4.1_01. New to Linux, where should I download this to and how do I install it? Thanks. P.S. My support from Mandrake Expert won't help me with this because they say java doesn't come with my "Discovery Pack" along with Gnome which is also there and I am using it now. So if it didn't come with it I must have aquired it divinly.
ok, here's the deal:
I have Mandrake9.2 installed on a P4, 2GHz, 512, 40GB hd and I also have a laptop P3, 800MHz,512 with Redhat (shrike).
On both I usr KDE as GUI and Mozilla 1.4 as my main browser.
If I go:
it says that JAVA-plugin 1.4.2_03 is installed, but when I try to install LimeWire it tells me that I have to install Java VM....?!?!?!
Doesn't VM come with the SDK package?
I'd love if someone could give me detailed info, since I am on this now for 5 days.
Thank's in advance,
ok, I'm still stuck. Tried to figure out how to create the shell using the link above, but it didn't work out.
I am a total newbie, could really need some >>>detailed<<< info. Any help is much appreciated.
