AMD64 JRE 1.5.0 Update 2 not containing mozilla plugin?


Hi,

I've downloaded recently the AMD64 Java Runtime Edition 1.5.0 Update 2 installer from Sun's download site, but when I give the .bin file execution permission and proceed to install it, it doesn't construct the plugin.jar file and consequently, it doesn't have a plugin folder, so I can't install the JRE 1.5.0 plugin for me to be able to use it on my Firefox browser...

does this occur with all users? I mean... do all of you had the same 'experience' with this installer or have I done something wrong? With Blackdown's JRE 1.4.2 I don't have that problem, but I would like to try 1.5.0

can anyone help me with this?

thanks in advance,

Julio

ive had pretty much the ssame issue.. installing java but not actually getting the browser plug in. (ie the suse upgrade) but also the manual install from sun's site. people here spoke of making a link to it in the mozilla plug-in folder. but that didnt work for me.

let me know what works for you.

Hi AnimaSola,

making a link to the 'actual' plugin doesn't make sense from my point of view, as the plugin is not created so, making an empty link doesn't seem to be an elegant solution, as when your browser hits a page containing java applets it will probably follow the link and discover there's nothing to run, so... well... it doesn't work...

maybe the mozilla plugin isn't ready to deploy in this release, maybe we'll have to wait for the 3rd update, if Sun's going to make a 3rd update, what's not clear, of course...

anyway, I have to continue looking for an answer to this...

thanks for your time and effort to answer

Julio

i just learned this myself (as i installed fedora core 3 64 again recently) there isnt a mozilla java plug for 64 bit OS browsers. which if you're running a 64 bit OS you have. this is why java doesnt work for you. didnt work for me.

i guess sun is a little behind or we're too far ahead.
