application/x-java-vm plugin?


My buddy is trying to go onto a site with a game that requires the plugin application/x-java-vm. I already installed Java from an RPM, so it's installed, but mozilla isn't picking up on it. I accidentally realized that a mozilla window was open during the RPM installation, would this hinder the install?

Please help, thanks!!

make a symbolic link after you figure out the proper paths -- mine is
/usr/lib/mozilla-1.6/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so -> (linked to) /opt/j2sdk/j2sdk-precompiled/jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so
use
ln -s target linkname

Oh, I don't have the SDK kit, I have the other one, does it make a difference?

You don't need the java sdk. The following instructions are for the SDK, so you may have to modify them a bit if you have just installed the jre. What distribution have you installed the java rpm. If you have installed it on Redhat/Fedora or Mandrake. You need to switch to root and create a symlink to the java plugin. For example on my Fedora core system, I would create the symlink as follows,

ln -s /usr/java/j2sdk[version]/jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla[version]/plugins/.

The command above should be on one line.

you are not giving us alot of details to go on but try getting the mozilla java plugin for fedora core 2 from
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3?stat...j2re&srodzaj=3

if you need to ask more we need:
your exact distribution
exact version of mozilla you are using
your gcc version
exactly what java rpm you installed and where it came from
exact output of mozilla -> help -> about plugins -- concerning java
and exact output of ls -l on mozilla plugin directory

Alright! I'm almost there. I downloaded and installed the SDK RPM and Mozilla picked up on it - it showed a long list of java stuff under Help -> Plugins. I have to use a hard link instead of a soft link or it says that there's too many levels of symbolic links, but I'm thinking that's not too much of a problem (but that's just a guess).

Here's the situation now though - whenever a java application opens, it crashes. Every Mozilla browser that's open ... closes. I've heard of this sort of thing before so I'm gonna search around, but I thought I'd post here in case I never found anything

Thanks!

i already downloaded the file j2re-1_4_2_05-linux-i586-rpm.bin

whats next, how can i run the file ???

Now, from a console, you need to run this file like so: sh j2re-1_4_1_01-linux-i586-rpm.bin. Read the license and agree to it. After you accept the license, it will extract the RPM. (If you got the SDK, substitute the filename where appropriate.)

Finished! It works great.

To anyone who needs a solution to this problem, install SDK. It just worked. JRE has issues.

Thanks to everyone that helped! Eternal gratutide to you!
