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.

I have FC2. I followed the guide at Linux Answers for installing java1.5.0_01. When those directions stopped matching what was happening I followed the directions at Java.com. I have no doubts that I successfully turned the .bin file into an RPM, created /usr/java, and installed jre1.5.0_01 into it. However, I entered the following:
* If Mozilla is installed in this directory:
* and if the JRE is installed at this directory:
* Then type at the terminal to go to the browser plug-in directory:
* Enter the following command to create a symbolic link to the Java Plug-in for the Mozilla browser.
ln -s /usr/java/jre1.5.0/plugin/i386/ns7
# Start Mozilla browser or restart it if it is already running. Note that if you have other Mozilla components (ie: Messenger, Composer, etc) running, you will need to restart them as well.
# Go to Edit > Preferences. Under Advanced category > Select Enable Java
I followed these instructions precisely. When I still couldn't see java things I went back to the Linux Answers thing and added in these:
Then you will have to remove all the default java associations by doing the following:
# cd /usr/bin
# rm java javac jar
If you get an error in removing any of the files java, javac, OR jar, it's okay, it's just to make sure you remove them. You will have to confirm to remove these files by typing a y at the prompt.
Next, you will have to create a link between the newly installed VM and the defaults for FC2 java vm by using the following command:
# cd /usr/bin
# ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.1_01/bin/java java
STill no plugin. I closed each Mozilla window every time I trouble shooted it.
I searched this forum for other examples. I know that they are for different versions of mozilla (I have 1.6) or java, but I tried the following links (substituting version numbers):
1. Go to the plugins sub-directory under the Mozilla installation directory
cd <Mozilla installation directory>/plugins
2. In the current directory, create a symbolic link to the JRE ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so file Type:
ln -s <JRE installation directory>/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so
I did it with mozilla 1.7 and java 1.4.02_07
I installed both and then I went to
ln -s /usr/local/java/j2re-1.4.02_07/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/
then restarted and worked like a dream. one thing though test that the user in question has access to the path by loging in as the person and attempting to edit the libjavaplugin ok. If it says permission denied do a chmod a+rx on the file as root. then each dir recursivly.
good luck mozilla is mean with java sometimes.
