JAVA and MOZILLA, mozilla just shuts off!!


I have a question about running Java in Mozilla. Ok, not I think I did all of the correct linking and stuff after I installed the JRE and SDK 1.4.1 into the /usr/local/ directiry. When I go to mozilla plugins, it does list all of the java files. Now here comes my problem. When I try to go onto a java-enabled web-site, eg. yahoo games, MOZILLA just entirely exits!! I've followed a lot of online tutorials, but they all lead to the same outcome. Please help me!

i experienced the same problem but discovered that i needed to link the plugin to the mozilla plugins directory (i had copied the file to the moz' folder)

on my system the required plugin is libjavaplugin_oji.so
this is found in /usr/java/j2re1.4.1_01/i386/plugin/ns610/

thus
to link them is
ln -s source target

with this process i found that a spelling mistake or syntax error does NOT throw up an error message
also, that i had to go into the /usr/lib/mozilla-1.1/plugins folder and manually delete the incorrect links

once corrected the problem goes away

ok, this is what I did, and i still doesn't want to work. I know that these paths are correct becuase I dragged and dropped the paths to the command line. Here is what I put in:

[root@localhost root]# ln -s /usr/local/java/j2re1.4.1_01/plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla-1.0.1/plugins/

any ideas?

are you sure that the plugin is in /usr/local/java ???

mine is in /usr/java/ the local file is NOT in the address on my system

do a "locate libjavaplugin_oji.so" to make sure

Try this last.

1. upgrate to mozilla 1.2.1
2. re-download and re-install the jdk.

OK, all you guys were right, it IS supposed to be in the /usr/java address, without the local there, now it works! I read that you need to put it in the local folder for it to work for all users. Myabe I misinterpreted it wrong. Thanks so much for all of your help. Mahalo!
