Ok, consider that I'm pondering (still) on the transition from *** to Linux for development, and I need to reach a working set. I've come to this.
When I download an applet, say this one
and I run this, I see the working
When I get the source, and I compile this, and _try_ to run this, I get "applet not initialised
Spex of my Java setup:
java version "1.6.0_0"
IcedTea6 1.4 (fedora-15.b14.fc10-i386) Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_0-b14)
OpenJDK Client VM (build 14.0-b08, mixed mode)
Ok, here's a thought, either install a JDK 1.4 to compile stuff (effectively DOWNgrading Java) or upgrading the JRE (now @ upgrade 13 - as you can see, I dont use that one - yet)
What would the impact be for my system/other software? How do I proceed? Wil (for example) my open office still work.
Oh and ... I use FireFox 3.and.then.some...
All out-of-the-box stuff...
And, yes, I have to trust Linux a bit more, but an upgrade in *** _could_ potentioally kill the system...so I'm "worried"...
Please give your insight, thanks!
BTW - there's a lot riding on this, if I dont see a solution soon, I may HAVE to revert to ***
