Fedora is working great except for two things

First I can't get java to work. I have only gnome installed, I have downloaded and installed the java runtime plugin. I have even made a symbolic link to the mozilla directory. Still no java. If in addition to the symbolic link I actually copy the java plugin in to the mozilla plugin directory, Mozilla crashes when a java program is encountered in a website.

Second, I have yum installed and when I do a yum list in a terminal in lists all the programs available for my system (I think). I can only scroll up in the terminal to around the P's in the alphabetical list, How do I scroll up in the terminal window?

and one more thing, the fonts in the terminal window are too close together some are on top of each other, any thoughts, thanks in advance.

For the terminal fonts, your terminal font may be corrupt. Try deleting it and downloading it to your font directory. I'm actually having the same problem with Java, so I don't know what to do about that.

to the yum list: the buffer of the terminal is not big enough to show all
hint: yum list > yum.txt
then you can see the text file yum.txt with your favorite text editor and there are all entries in it

With java, make sure you link the plugin from <java installation>/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/

There are other plugins for different versions of gcc and different versions of Mozilla - they don't work.

Correct, and NEVER copy the file to the plug-in's directory or it WILL crash Mozilla. Unlike some OTHER plug-ins where you DO copy files into there, the Java plug-in needs a sym link. Also, if you don't know what compiler was used to build Mozilla with, put in the address line


and it will tell you...I'm pretty sure all of the recent builds are using the GCC 3.2 so the ns610-gcc32 one would be the one to use!

have fun!

Yeah, but you really don't need to get the whole SDK...just the
runtime environment will work and is a much lighter weight download.

But yes, the SDK will work too because it contains the regular stuff
plus a bunch of extra stuff....
