Unhappy Latest Java JRE doesn't seem to work


I recently installed RedHat 9.0 and needed to install JRE for Mozilla. Just before I tried to install it, I install the latest version of Mozilla...These two programs exist independent of each other. After I installed java, the plug in was still missing in action. I downloaded the .rpm.bin file from java, extracted the rpm and installed it. I installed it from the terminal and using the graphical program. The files are written but the plugin is not detected....What should I do? Am I doing something wrong?

Try this. Should work for you too even though it is not Mandrake. Good luck and welcome to LQ!!

You have to have Jre-1.4 or higher for moilla or firebird make sure the jre you downloaded was this version or higher.

I looked at the instructions that you gave, benji, and I got to looking at what was in my mozilla plugins directory. The java plugin is in there...well a link to it is and that is what the instructions were trying to get me to do. But the plugin still does not show up in the plugins list and doesn't work. Java is installed and everything seems to be in its place. I'm thinking that maybe some other setting is keeping it from working. I tried pasting the actual plugin file in there but that didn't help. I also tried one of the other plugins that was in the java/j2re1.4.2_03/plugin/i386 directory. Those didn't help either. One of them cause mozilla to not start up...but that wasn't very useful.

And thanks for the welcome!

Interesting. I guess I would verify that the link is valid (ie. it points to the correct file. Something tells me you would require a link as apposed to copying the file over). You may delete the link and recreate it yourself. Also the instructions tell you to copy it to /usr/lib/mozilla-1.xxx/plugins. You can also put it in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. I have heard success stories with that.
If that still doesn't work maybe try a re-download of the jre. Past that I'm lost.

I had the same problem. If you are useing mozilla-1.5 or higher or firebird you have to have java-1.4 or higher. the java 1.3 will not work with mozilla-1.5 or higher, the libjavaplugin.so will be in your plugins directory but it will not showup or work. http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/linux.html#Java READ This
