Mozilla, Java and Red Hat 9.0


I've installed mozilla 1.4 on red hat 9 and removed 1.2.1 which came with red hat. I've installed java 1.4.1_04 and created the symbolic link in the /usr/local/mozilla/plugins directory and also in ~/.mozilla/plugins. I can see the link and it looks ok when I use the gui browser.

When i start Mozilla using ./run-mozilla.sh I get the following error in the terminal

LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library /usr/java/j2re1.4.1_04/plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so [/usr/java/j2re1.4.1_04/plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so: undefined symbol: GetGlobalServiceManager__16nsServiceManagerPP17nsIServiceManager]

and get Mozilla but no java. I checked the plugins and no java. And No newsmonster, which is why I am doing this all in the first place. Oh and its fun too . . . Ah linux.

Any ideas or help would be most appreciated

I believe the most current JRE is 1.4.2 I had an older version on my machine and the plugin wouldn't work until I updated my JRE.

Hi all, first post to this forum, hope this one will help you.

You need a Java plugin that is compiled with GCC 3.2

you can find one here:

I have finally found a solution to the MOZ 1.4 + Java plug-in upgrade problem (based on RH9).....

First I tried to use the Mozilla 1.4 (.tar.gz) version DL'ed from the ftp.mozilla.org site, together with latest JRE(ver. 1.4.2) + a sym link to gcc32 plug-in. Didn't work, resultet in hung'ups etc.

So, I removed all traces of Mozilla from the original RH9 installation (w/ rpm -e), i.e. 1.2 version.
Then I installed ver. 1.4 FROM RPM INSTEAD. The result is a fully working Mozilla 1.4 including the nice fonts, working Java etc.

You need all the rpm's (i.e nss, nspr etc.).
You can DL the rpm's from e.g.
http://atrpms.physik.fu-berlin.de/dist/rh9/mozilla/

Enjoy!

BTW - you can take the RPMS for Mozilla 1.4 right from the RH10 Beta - that'll give you the latest builds. I think you find Mozilla (+ support RPM's on ISO disk No 1.
