Java Plugin for Netscape 7.1


Hello All,
Well, I have installed Netscape 7.1 and Java 2 1.4.2, I linked the plugin in Netscape, I look at the About Plugins within Netscape and it says:

But when I go to a page with Java, Netscape just quits. No errors, nothing. Any ideas?

Thanks

run netscape in the command line and see what the errors if any are listed after going to a site with java.

the only thing i can say is that this version of java has stability issues with some users. have you tried going to that same site in mozilla?

Well, when I run it from the command line I get:
INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: Exec of "java_vm" failed: 2
<
System error?:: No such file or directory
Gdk-ERROR **: Fatal IO error 9 (Bad file descriptor) on X server :0.0.
INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: Could not read ack from child process
System error?:: No such file or directory

I have no clue!

try creating a link to the java plugin inside your mozilla browser's plugins folder and run mozilla. see if mozilla crashes. if it doesn't, it looks like netscape 7.1 could be glitched.

I figured out the problem. When you are linking the plugin, make sure it is a symbolic link (ln -s).

Java plugin for Netscape 7.1

I have question about java plugin, am using Netscape 7.1 here. According to instruction said about Set the NPX_PLUGIN_PATH environment variable.

export NPX_PLUGIN_PATH=JRE/plugin/i386/ns4

where does the /plugin/i386/ns4 from ?

Also said that cd NETSCAPE/plugins

There is no path for NETSCAPE/plugins

I am confuse of all the path thing.

The netscape is in /usr/local/netscape

Can anyone help of any idea ?

Thanks.

Try this:

su
<password>

then:

cd usr/local/netscape/plugins/

then:

ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_03/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so

Restart netscape and go to 'Help -> About Plug-Ins' and you should see it listed. Then go to any Java web page and it should work.

If 'j2re1.4.2_03' isn't your java version, just replace it with the correct one. The easiest thing to do is after typing 'ln -s /usr/java/' just type 'j' and press tab. It should auto-fill the correct dir name in.
