going back to why 1.4.0_01 won't work.. the first suggestion
was that the mozilla "USER_AGENT" isn't set correctly.
I checked my mozilla parameters on this useful page:
(scroll down to the Apache Environment)
and observe that USER_AGENT is indeed Mozilla/5.0,
which (if I understood correctly) is what jre wants the
USER_AGENT to be. (I'm using the mdk tweaked mozilla)
Hence the USER_AGENT bug wouldn't seem to explain
I then regressed to the 1.4.0 (no _01) java, and see exactly
the same behavior.
With regard to symlinking: I've symlinked, not copied, so
I should be OK here too. (Why does copying not work??)
Haven't tried 1.4.1beta yet, but I have this strong suspicion
that there's some systemic problem, such as incorrect glibc.
(I'm running mdk82 with /lib/libc-2.2.4.so) I checked per-
missions - 755 - on libjavaplugin, no problem there.
Hmm, come to think of it, if there's a systemic problem, then
why does konqueror find the plugins?
Any other ideas?
