Thumbs down J2RE 1.4. Pissing me off..


Ugh. I need help. I downloaded the J2RE 1.4. It unpacked to the folder j2re1.4.0, so I moved it to /usr/local/bin/j2re1.4.0

I put
/usr/local/bin/j2re1.4.0/lib in ld.so.conf and ldconfig'd

I put
/usr/local/bin/j2re1.4.0/bin in my PATH statement and relogged in

I put the
/usr/local/bin/j2re1.4.0/plugins/i386/ns4/<name of the java plugin> in my Mozilla plugins folder.

I turned on Java in Mozilla (RC1)

I go to a Java game, and WHAM! mozilla crashes saying that java_vm failed to start.

In Konqueror, it doesnt crash, but applets are just a grey box.

What am I doing WRONG!

I have problems same as you when using Mandrake 8.0
But if you change your distro to Mandrake 8.2, I think you can solve your problem. Mandrake 8.2 is straight forward when you want using java.

OK you need to make a symlink from /usr/local/bin/j2re1.4.0/plugins/i386/ns600/<name of the java plugin> to your mozilla plugins directory the plugin you were using is for netscape4 if there is no ns600 there should be ns610

u might wanna put all the mozilla plugins in the ~/.mozilla/plugins directory

that way ur plugins aren't lost when u install a new mozilla version and they'll work with every mozilla version on ur system
