Java help...


I use Mozilla 1.3.1 and Slackware 9. When I installed Java, everything worked fine until I went to anywhere using java. Let's use chat.yahoo.com as an example. When I got in a room, I couldn't click anywhere or type, it would just make that pc-beep thing..help please?

yeah, the applet loads, and I have the plugin installed. Sorry to be so vague about the "pc-beep" its hard to explain it though, you know, the beep that comes from your tower instead of your speakers

I've heard that only the blackdown version of java works with the newer releases of mozilla. Where did you get the java plugin from?

You must check what GCC Mozilla was compiled on. I think that on Mozilla 1.3 and later, you can find it in the Help Section on something like "build info" or something like that. If it was built on GCC 2.95 you can use the Sun Microsystems Java (current version 1.4.1_03)...but if on GCC 3.2 you will need to use the Blackdown version (current version 1.4.1_01)

Install it manually per instructions (as super-user or root) and then remember that you must make a SYMBOLIC LINK to the browser plug-in directory. After that, check in the Help>About Plug-ins to make sure that it is registered and you should be in business.

Don't forget to get rid of the version that you had tried to install before first (at least the link, if it exists, in your Plug-in's folder). I'm not sure where the "netscape" downloaded version would install but it is probably in your /usr/local directory somewhere.

The Sun and Blackdown version install there so that you know where they are. I would recommend using the .tar.gz and not a package manager.
