Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm running Mdk9.2, and I have some problems to find the right stuff for running a java-applet in Mozilla.
If I want to view something, the space in the webpage remains empty.
Clicking on it results in this message:
cannot find "application/x-java-vm".
Where can I find this, and how do I get it working properly?
Do you have the java plugin installed? You can check by typing this into mozilla:
What version of mozilla? Do you have a java installed?
If you already have java installed, you can use the plugin that came with it -- as long as it was built with the same version of gcc that was used to build mozilla. The name of this file is libjavaplugin_oji.so, and it needs to be placed in your mozilla plugins directory. Try searching from the command line:
... and if java is installed, you should see several search results similar to this one:
Copy or symlink that file to your mozilla plugins directory, which might be something like /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins or /opt/mozilla/plugins.
Thnx for your replies. It confuses me: I thought that Mozilla could not run without Java, and that it was already available with Mandrake 9.2.
I tried to find the file that mgatny told me to look for, but there was nothing.
So I tried "locate *java*" and I found a lot of java files, mostly kjava.
Now, can I just download Sun's JRE 1.4.2 and install it on my computer to enable java applets to be run?
Check if /usr/java/ directory is there and that it has something seful in it. If it's not there then you can download Sun's JRE. Once it's installed go to /usr/java/jre???/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32(or similar). You'll find the plugin there. Copy this to /usr/lib/mozilla-1.6/plugins/ you'll probly wanna do this as root.
Just get Java 1.2.4 from Sun's page, install it where ever you want, and add something like this to your /etc/profile (these are my settings):
Maybe somehing like this already is there, just add what you need for Java:
if [ $LD_LIBRARY_PATH ]
if ! set | grep LD_LIBRARY_PATH | grep /usr/X11R6/lib:/usr/X11R6/lib/modules:/usr/share/java/j2sdk1.4.2 > /dev/null
Now just create a symlink (*never* copy the file!) of your desired plugin to Mozilla's installation directory, restart Mozilla, and you're ready.
