Sun Provides 64-bit Java Plug-In For Linux


Maybe the bot will post it later today, but I'll post it anyway in case it doesn't.

Now, if only I could get it working with FF... (it works with konqueror)

Oh, and here's how you install it:
https://jdk6.dev.java.net/plugin2/#INSTALLATION

Also note that it will not work with FF 2.0.x and for me it crashes seamonkey if you go to a java page.

BROKEN NO libnpjp2.so IN THE PACKAGE !!
the only 64bit java plugin I can find depends on having 2 JDKs installed
this is way too much space for just running java applets

It is not broken:

1) Download this:
http://www.java.net/download/jdk6/6u...2_dec_2008.bin

2) Make it executable and place it where you want to install it, or anywhere stable and symlink it later.

3) Run it.

4) It should have extracted itself, and now you will find the plugin at './jre1.6.0_12/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so', symlink that to '~/.mozilla/plugins' or globally to '/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins' and it will work.
