Actually you only need the java rpm from
Than go to you java directory (usually usr/java), go into the /plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32 directory. Just make a link to this file in your .mozilla/plugins directory. This will work for mozilla and Thunderbird (since thunderbird can use all of the plugins from the .mozilla directory).

java link

i have tried the link method, and it did not work for me. i posted this for people who are still having trouble with installing java.

i have not tried it wih Firebird yet.

i would suggest the fedora mailing list. there are some helpful answers there.

Post j2re

Here is another approach you can try to install Java 2 Runtime:
1) # rpm -ivh compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.118.i386.rpm (You can find this rpm in the Fedora CD3)
2) Download j2re-1_4_2_01-linux-i586-rpm.bin from
3) # chmod a+x j2re-1_4_2_01-linux-i586-rpm.bin
4) # ./j2re-1_4_2_01-linux-i586-rpm.bin to extract j2re-1_4_2_01-linux-i586.rpm
5) # rpm -ivh j2re-1_4_2_01-linux-i586.rpm
6) # ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_01/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc322/ /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
7) Test the virtual machine at and you should see "that dancing creature".
