Thumbs down JRE not working with Firefox 2.0.0.8 on FC8


Hi,

I installed jre1.6.0_03 on my Fedora 8 machine. I am using the Firefox version 2.0.0.8.

To enable java plugin, I created a symbolic link for the file jre1.6.0_03/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so in my firefox plugin directory.

When searched for " aboutlugins "in my firefox search bar, it did show the java plugin installed


Java(TM) Plug-in 1.6.0_03-b05

File name: libjavaplugin_oji.so
Java(TM) Plug-in 1.6.0_03

But still I am not able to open java enabled web pages. I have enabled java as well as js in my firefox preferences.

The jre test from http://www.java.com/en/download/inst...tect=jre&try=1 also fails.

Does it got something to do with the SE policies??? I disabled the SElinux, still it is not working???

Please help me out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Thanks in advance

The error that is shown in the console is

VM did not start up properly
java_vm: xcb_xlib.c:50: xcb_xlib_unlock: Assertion `c->xlib.lock' failed.
Could not read ack from child process
Plugin: Java VM process has died.
Could not start JavaVM!


How can I avoid this???

Any idea what could be the reason for:
xcb_xlib.c:50: xcb_xlib_unlock: Assertion `c->xlib.lock' failed.

Please help
