Why Can't Install Java & Flash!!!!!!
I really got tired!!!Really!!

I followed these :

but it just doesn't work!

I have fedora 7 on 64bit

The instructions you followed were for a 32-bit x86 system, not an x86_64 64-bit system. If you are on an x86_64 environment, you have to start by installing the 32-bit Firefox in order to be compatible with Java (32-bit) and Flash (32-bit). Follow the instructions here.

Install the self-extracting rpm version for java from Sun's site it works just follow the directions at the site. For the flash plugin use the rpm package from here:

The flash-plugin- rpm file for el4 or el5 should install just fine. Also if sticking with the 64-bit version of firefox you will need to install the 64-bit jre from blackdown;

Also use the nswrapperplugin packages from here;
Direct links to the rpm files;

Hi all,

I've installed java and it seems to be working properly but I can't get the firefox plugin to work.
When I enter

#java -version

it returns:

java version "1.6.0_02"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_02-b05)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0_02-b05, mixed mode, sharing)

if I type about: plugins in firefox it doesn't show any java plugins.
I've gone through the song and dance with the symbolic link as described in every howto out there, but it doesn't seem to work. Oh ya... it's all 32 bit on F7

Take a look here You should have compat-libstdc++-33 installed also.

You may also want to look here:

Install the nspluginwrapper viewer first, then nspluginwrapper, then scroll down for the plugins you need and follow the instructions for each plugin.
