Angry Java is killing me!!!

I just installed rh9 and i wanted to get java to run on it. So i downloaded j2re1.4.2_01. I installed it, linked it to my plugin dir in mozilla-1.2.1. but mozilla hasn't recognized the link so i can't go any website that uses java. I also wanted to install limewire and xnap...and those use java aswell. can someone help me out?

I hear you, I linked the plug in to the correct directories for Mozilla and Netscape 7.01 and cannot even get those apps to start now. If I unlink the plug in, the apps will start! I looked at the file permisssions and they are executale for users on the system.

I should add that I am sure that other than the plug in issue, Java is working fine. I am basing this on the fact that I upgraded to Open Office 1.1 which looked for a Java run-time environment. I pointed it to the correct directory and the upgrade went beautifully.

But as for the plug-in ............Grrrr.

I will let you know if I figure this out.

Try linking to the .so file in the ns610-gcc32 instead of the plain jane ns610 version.
Also, some builds of Mozilla and Firebird have had problems with Java.

Thank you very much!!!

That did the trick, Netscape and Mozilla both open and are working fine.
