Java 64 bits and applications of 32 bits
I have a 64 bits linux box, and the question is: The java plugin for 64 bits linuxes can be used inside a firefox of 32 bits? I need the firefox for 32 bits because the flash plugin for 64 bits doesn't exists.
If not, is possible to install two jvm, one at 32 bits and the other at 64?
Any advise?

im confused what your question is but i will try to answert it thebest i can. No you can not use the 64 bit java plugin in 32 bit firefox. if you want the flash plugin you will have to create a chroot environment of 32 bits or you will have to download a 32 bit binary of firefox although i have tried this method and it didnt wor so your best bet is creating the 32 bit chroot environment. Youll have to do some reading on that.

Thanks for your reply. I'm actually using a 32 bits firefox in my box, and works very well with the flash player (better than konqueror, which has problems with the sound). Thus, the only lack in my firefox is the java virtual machine. Is possible install both, the 32bits jvm and the 64bits one?
Sorry for my "spaghetti English"

youll have to install the 32 bit vm if you also have a 64 bit version of your browser you will need to install the 64 bit vm in that
