Question Mozilla 1.4 and Java


Hey ppl,

I have installed Mozilla 1.4 and cant seem to get java working.
I'm relatively new to this but understand what needs to be done, my question is this:

Where exactly does the java plugin go? I have put it in /usr/local/mozilla/plugins and im pretty sure this is the right dir as mozilla 1 shows up in /usr/lib/mozilla 1.1 but it doesnt show up when I use the show plugins thing in help...
Also i cant seem to find java anywhere under preferences???

Im using j2re-1_4_0_02-fcs-linux-i586.rpm is this even the right one?

Also i noticed on another post that someone was symbolically linking the plugin.. do i need to do that rather than just copy the libjavaplugin_oji.so?

Thanx

yes, you have to make a symlink in your ~/.mozilla/plugins directory to the java .so file. when you've linked to the right file, the plugins should show up in the mozilla Help/About plugins screen when you restart the browser.

>edit, or maybe in RH you can also make the symlink in /usr/local/mozilla/plugins.

ok umm first im stupid and was running 1.0.1 the whole time!
Now i have the plugin symlinked to both and it shows in 1.01 but anytime i access java stuff mozilla 1.0.1 chrashes... would be fine if...
Another real stupid question...
How do i run 1.4 versus 1.01? i have installed 1.4 just thought it would update / overwrite?
Cant test 1.4 till i can figure out how to run it...

All icons and shortcuts goto 1.0.1 and #mozilla from prompt runs 1.0.1 also...??

Sorry to be such a pain...

no, it won't overwrite, you have to remove the old version. then just make new icon and menu shortcuts and link them to 1.4. it's probably in /usr/local/mozilla, unless you installed it somewhere else.

OK, I've sucessfully removed mozilla 1.0.1 and 1.4 is now default, problem is the plugin does not work, heres the shell output:

LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library /usr/local/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so [/usr/local/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so: undefined symbol: GetGlobalServiceManager__16nsServiceManagerPP17nsIServiceManager]

Its a symbolic link, thats right yer? Thinking i may have a wrong version of java now its mozilla 1.4, cause 1.0.1 would read it fine just it chrashed when trying to view java pages..

I actually had to make two symbolic links for it to work, and I'm not sure why. But anyway, the two places I made the symbolic links are:

/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
/usr/local/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

Maybe that'll solve your problem?

nope unfortunately not its in the right place because it finds it /usr/local/mozilla/plugins just it wont load, /usr/lib/mozilla is for mozilla 1.0.1, in RH anyway
