Need help installing java plugin for firefox on slackware 13.1


I have an openvz vps and it has a vps admin panel from solusvm for administration.

In the vps admin panel is a console (Java), but mine looks like the picture below.

I checked in firefox and thought maybe there was something wrong with my java plugin. Everywhere I look I see different instructions with different directories and it was confusing.

So I said just do it like slackware and I got the slackware64-current/source/local/jre directory and build jre-6u25xx86_64-1.txz from jre.SlackBuild and then upgradepkg --install-new --verbose jre-6u20-x86_64-1%jre-6u25-x86_64-1.txz

I hope I didn't break my slackware.

Before I did that, I disabled my flash plugin in firefox according to some instructions before upgrading jre.

Then I went to my vps control solusvm vps control panel and went to console. Nothing.

Then I remembered I disabled my flash plugin in firefox. so I enabled it. It's works again. I get the same error as in the picture all over again.

So if that doesn't make my vps control panel work, what do I need to do to make it work? I tried in windows and it had to install the flasplayer plugin before it worked - Are there more than one flashplayer plugins?

I'm running firerfox 3.6.17

Nothing is wrong with your setup. It's the application you're loading (VPS control panel or whatever) that's crashing. Submit a bug report to the people responsible for maintaining it.

but it works when I try to access the console from a windows computer. I don't understand, but thank you and my slackware is still running good, even if the java console in my vps control panel isn't.

Not all java applets are created equal. I too have occasional issues access java apps via Firefox on my corporate vpn. The applets run fine under MS Windows IE6, 7, 8 aand FF 3.6 but not FF 4.x and crash in FF under Linux. What does that tell you?

I cannot say what that tells me. It would only make C programmers happy and all java programmers hate me.

But thank you both, and I understand now.
