Firefox 1.0 won't launch w/Jre1.5.0 installed


Plugin finder doesn't work for Java either. Symlinked to java and it won't launch. Delete "libjavaplugin_oji.so" and it'll launch. Bug #268809, anyone else having this problem?

Which version of Lib are you linking ?

Sun has 2 ... one under (I think) ns7 and other under ns7-gcc-29 (..) ..
you have to use the one that's compatible with your compile. Most likely the gcc-29 or gcc-31 version.

Not having the "right" lib in the plugin directory makes the firefox exit.

I used the ns7-gcc29. My version of Mandrake has gcc 3.3.1. Gcc29 is in jre 1.5.0 plugin. Am I to assume that the version of java I have won't work with the new Firefox? Thanks for the reply, got nothing at Mozillazine.

You should use the plugin for GCC 3.2, which is in the ns7 subdirectory (not ns7-gcc29). I just installed JDK 1.5.0 on my Linux machine and was able to start Firefox 1.0 successfully. The plugin is recognised correctly.

The symlink command I used is:

$ cd /my_firefox_dir/plugins
$ ln -s /usr/java/jdk1.5.0/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

(My Linux distribution also has GCC 3.3.1.)

I put the gcc29 in the symlink, it placed the plugin in firefox's plugin directory. I see you left that part out, I'll try it that way, thanks. Firefox is a buggy piece. I've been using Opera for a few years and am happy with it but can't resist the chance to try something new.

That's what the problem was, thanks. BTW, I live in Concrete, used to on NE 170th not far from you daihard. How can I add audio files to Fiefox such as PLS and ASX to use through gxine? Moz 1.7.3 would let you add files and helper apps but the download section of FF won't accomodate.

You mean my Web site left that part out? Yeah, I should update it to include JDK 1.5.0 now that it's out. As for Firefox... it came a long way. I've been using it since Phoenix 0.4, and let me tell ya, it's gotten a whole lot better.
