libjavaplugin and firefox problem help!


I have recently installed the x86_64 version of FC5 and used yum to install firefox because when I downloaded the sourced I had a problem running it. Firefox runs fine but it won't load the libjavaplugin_oji.so file. Now I know that many people have problems with this but I have installed the plugin perfectly in the previous two releases and I have inserted the symbolic link into the plugins directory. I have Java release 5.0_1, when I run firefox in the shell I get this error:: libjavaplugin_oji.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32..
What the hell is going on? I guess I have the 64 bit version of firefox and the 32 bit version of java??? But the 64-bit version of java doesn't come with libjavaplugin_oji.so... Someone please help I have got everything else pretty much to work and am trying to never use windows again except for things unsupported by linux but I hate windows and I don't want to use it! Help me get away from microsoft!
thanks people.

That's perfectly understandable... the 32-bit java plugin does not work with the 64-bit version of firefox. There is no 64-bit java plugin for anything available either.

Soultion use the 32-bit version of firefox, not only will the 32-bit java plugin work but other plugins like the flashplayer plugin (no 64-bit version either).

OK, but you do not need yum for one file....

rpm -Uvh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...0.1-9.i386.rpm

The command is one long line with a space after the 'rpm -Uvh' part.

Or if you want one that is less dependent on un-needed junk visit;

http://www.fedoranews.org/tchung/firefox/1.5.0.1/

Grab all three files and get the firefox-1.5.0.1.tar.gz if needed.

Copy everything except the firefox.spec file to /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES copy the firefox.spec file to /usr/src/redhat/SPECS then from this location from the console or xterm session do;

rpmbuild -bb firefox.spec

Code:
-rw-r--r--  1 lenard lenard  8618515 Feb  9 06:14 firefox-1.5.0.1-1.i386.rpm
-rw-rw-r--  1 lenard lenard 17537338 Apr  3 15:23 firefox-1.5.0.1-9.i386.rpm

I am having the some problems.

When I try to rpm the file, I get:

error: Failed dependencies:
libbonoboui-2.so.0 is needed by firefox-1.5.0.1-9.i386
libgnome-2.so.0 is needed by firefox-1.5.0.1-9.i386
libgnome-keyring.so.0 is needed by firefox-1.5.0.1-9.i386
libgnomeui-2.so.0 is needed by firefox-1.5.0.1-9.i386
