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.

it uses a java app within the browser to launch the game.
when i get the game page loaded, firefox tells me i'm missing a plugin. so i click the "install missing plugins" only to find out that there aren't any for me to download, and i have to do it manually.
a bit of an update.. i found out that i was creating the links with bad names, as the links in the mozilla/plugins file were broken.
i've fixed that issue, and now the game doesn't ask for a plugin.. but when it gets to that spot, it still doesn't load the java app, and firfox tells me that the page is loaded... it's like it's ignoring the game entirely. what am i missing?
ok, so when i tried to go to the site again i noticed this file in my home folder:
i open it with gedit, and it says this:
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Could not initialize class com.sun.deploy.config.Config
at sun.plugin.AppletViewer.initEnvironment(Unknown Source)
at sun.plugin.navig.motif.Plugin.doit(Unknown Source)
at sun.plugin.navig.motif.Plugin.start(Unknown Source)
again, thanks for the advice, but i've already done all of that (refer to my opening post).
i'm quite certain that i've done so properly.. as i've been through that instruction list at least a dozen times.
i have jre1.6.0_02 installed. (at least as far as http://www.java.com/en/download/help/5000010500.xml#rpm has instructed me to do so)
i have a link from the java library in the mozilla/plugins file.
quite certian i'm not using an x64 system, so there is no need to get 32bit forefox.
and i still have the issue of the game not working.
wtf am i doing wrong?
(post 5 might be of interest)
yea.. bad idea on that one. firefox closed itself after x amount of time with the gcc version... i tried "firefox" in the terminal to see if it would give me any feed back.. it didn't.
so i tried to use konqueror to get to the site, as i've heard that it reads plugins from the mozilla/plugins folder. it did the exact same thing firefox did with the plugin i had in place before all of this; said the page was loaded and all i had was a black screen where the game should have been.
so i switched back to the ns7 version (not ns7-gcc29)
