java in slackware 12.2


hi,
i use slackware 12.2 on a notebook (T42)

i already posted the problem in a german forum...
http://www.slackforum.de/forum/index...=3449&start=0&

so far no solution..

maybe i have more luck here around.
to make it short....firefox (seamonkey as well)doesnt show me content of the following site..

try for yourself...no registration necessary..

www.win2day.at>spiel auswählen>american roulette>öffentlicher tisch>
just click on a table...now the java machine should start...after 2 seconds the window disappears and a white screen is there instead..

i also use firefox...in "aboutlugins" there is my java machine recognized as my flashplayerplugin too..

also installed mplayerplugin..to no avail

so i use now vectorlinux..there it is no problenm to view the site..

otherwise i love slackware...
so maybe there is a workaround available somewhere...

thanks for your time and efforts in advance

greets günter

Which version of Java do you have installed (open a terminal and type "java -version" minus the quotes). It works fine for me.

Did you do a fresh 12.2 install or an upgrade?

hi..

i did an fresh install

i know tht in other distris this issue works fine..except in slackware (same in 11 and 12.0, 12.1..)

@xavierp: does it work on your slackware box??i mean
the site "www.win2day.at"
if yes..what have you done

to get me right...youtube videos and other stuff works
great with flashplayer too
the only issue ist this one gamingsite...
try for yourself...with slackware

btw: java machne is the default with slackware 12.2..
i am not sitting in front of a slackwarebox now...

but i recall the version of 1.6. whatever..
looked up in "about: plugins" in firefox

btw: i did a full install...

any hints..

regards günter

I'm currently on Debian Lenny - I don't think I've had Slackware running on this laptop before and I want to make sure I have the time and energy to pick up on any "gotchas" that Dell might have for me

Can you run us through the steps you took to install? Which file did you symlink to the plugin folder?

hmmm..usually its not necessary to symlink anythink...
i dont know now where java is stored in slackware...because i am right now sitting in front of a vector-box..

i did an normal full install...

then i installed adobe flashplayer(automatically installs in mozilla directory in home...

firefox recognice the java machine...

but thats for sure: neither in 11,12, or 12.1 this site worked..(a friend of mine tried with his 11 slack too..

1) How about providing a link to the site :
" www.win2day.at>spiel auswählen>american roulette>öffentlicher tisch> "
This line gives no result, also not with http:// written
into the text.
EDIT..this is it http://www.win2day.at/gaming/index.html

2) Some sites use "odd javascript" , then try the
'Opera browser' , might work.

The "spiel auswählen" bit is a drop down menu to the right of the page. Then select American Roulette from the list.

I think you need as well flashplayer as javaplugin.

install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz > install_flash_player_10_linux
and install to /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.4

# ln -s /usr/lib/java/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so \
/usr/lib/firefox-3.0.4/plugins ( There isn't made any link by default )

I find the best way to install Flash is to install to /usr/lib/firefox as that is a symlink to whichever your current version is. If you install to the current version's folders you have to move the plugins when you update. Installing to the symlinked folder means that the plugins follow the installs.

So my plugin directory is:
Code:
spinelli:~$ cd /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/
ray@spinelli:/usr/lib/firefox/plugins$ ls -l
total 12500
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 10022452 2009-01-03 15:10 libflashplayer.so*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root    15792 2008-12-02 06:07 libnullplugin.so*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root   541313 2009-01-03 16:54 mplayerplug-in-dvx.so*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root   541537 2009-01-03 16:54 mplayerplug-in-qt.so*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root   541609 2009-01-03 16:54 mplayerplug-in-rm.so*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root   541889 2009-01-03 16:54 mplayerplug-in-wmp.so*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root   543265 2009-01-03 16:54 mplayerplug-in.so*

# 10 . No, I have the same 3. Make sure that Firefox 3.0.4
is the version, you are using. See # 11.

Works fine for me - the Java is the Java that is installed by Slackware during the OS installation. No extra tweaking or configuring required.
