I have installed Mozilla 1.4 and cant seem to get java working.
I'm relatively new to this but understand what needs to be done, my question is this:
Where exactly does the java plugin go? I have put it in /usr/local/mozilla/plugins and im pretty sure this is the right dir as mozilla 1 shows up in /usr/lib/mozilla 1.1 but it doesnt show up when I use the show plugins thing in help...
Also i cant seem to find java anywhere under preferences???
Im using j2re-1_4_0_02-fcs-linux-i586.rpm is this even the right one?
Also i noticed on another post that someone was symbolically linking the plugin.. do i need to do that rather than just copy the libjavaplugin_oji.so?
yes, you have to make a symlink in your ~/.mozilla/plugins directory to the java .so file. when you've linked to the right file, the plugins should show up in the mozilla Help/About plugins screen when you restart the browser.
>edit, or maybe in RH you can also make the symlink in /usr/local/mozilla/plugins.

ok umm first im stupid and was running 1.0.1 the whole time!
Now i have the plugin symlinked to both and it shows in 1.01 but anytime i access java stuff mozilla 1.0.1 chrashes... would be fine if...
Another real stupid question...
How do i run 1.4 versus 1.01? i have installed 1.4 just thought it would update / overwrite?
Cant test 1.4 till i can figure out how to run it...
All icons and shortcuts goto 1.0.1 and #mozilla from prompt runs 1.0.1 also...??
no, it won't overwrite, you have to remove the old version. then just make new icon and menu shortcuts and link them to 1.4. it's probably in /usr/local/mozilla, unless you installed it somewhere else.
