now we see what happened

/usr/lib/mozilla
should be a symbolic link to
/usr/lib/mozilla-1.2.1
but I think it points somewhere else

we can fix that some other time

RealPlayer8-plugin-8.0.3.412-6.i386.rpm

go to google
search for the above
save it to a new folder

$ su
< password >
# rpm -Uvh RealPlayer8-plugin-8.0.3.412-6.i386.rpm

this will result in a file called " rpnp.so " in your current directory
# ls will let you see it
# cp rpnp.so /usr/lib/mozilla-1.2.1/plugins

and you got realplayer in mozilla

your desktop Icons are btw symlinks

if you remove one the program doesnt disappear
just the link on the desktop does

unless you've moved the program to the desktop
which you can do on linux but thats not really a good idea

Everything on that page seems to be working just fine...

I WAS testing on Yahoo.com, because their games are all Java. Like literati and what not. My wife and I like to play scrabble between the two PC's all the time, and I know I need java for that so that's where I was testing.

Don't tell me it's a different type of Java??

I tried using this Java test. No dice.

It just shows a little puzzle piece.

Well, good sir, I'm going to resume work on this tomorrow. It's almost 4 am here, and I'm waxed. I'm so tired I'm having a real hard time concentrating.

I'll look for you on here again tomorrow nite, hopefully I can find ya. if you have ICQ, PM your # and I'll find ya that way. If not, you can PM an e-mail addy.

Thanks for your two hours, even if we couldn't get java working, I learned more from you in the last two hours that I learned from reading in the last 3 days. Can't say thanks enough.

Signing off;

Robb
