2) how the hell can i give my self full permission so i can install any programs with out damaging the system.
please provide step by step guide as i need all the help i can get i am a newbie to linux and never touch it.
Also, sometimes when you download an rpm and you go to install it and it says that you do not have the correct permissions, you can just right click on it and go into the permissions tab and then put the 'x' in the boxes to give you access... OR you can open up the CLI and cd to the directory with the file and type:
Distribution: Solaris 10, Solaris 8.0, Fedora Core 3
mozdev.org has a great page on installing java as well as other plugins. I got all the ones that are listed as supported and untested to work on Mozilla 1.4 (the latest stable version) Here is the location: http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/linux.html
Here is a website so you can test the plugins: http://fredrik.hubbe.net/plugger.html
To get the plugin to work create a symbolic link from the java plugins to the mozilla plugins. Here is the command:
ln -s /java/plugin/javaplugin.so /mozilla/plugin/javaplugin.so
Not so cool I'm I there seem to be a problem i am now getting this error message:
