Question Phoenix Java Plugin- HELP!

Hi all,

I have recently compiled Phoenix, but are having many problems in getting the java plugin to work.

I have tried installing java symlinking it to the plugins directory, but still not working

Is it possible somebody could talk me though the process

If you used gcc 3.2 to compile phoenix you need to get the blackdown java. As far as I know, the sun java won't work with browsers compiled with gcc 3.2 (they may have one now)

I got an error message very similar to that one when trying to install Java Plugin for Mozilla. In fact, I think it was exactly the same. It went away after I:

1. Symlinked the plugin file rather than copied it. I beleive you said you had done this already, so it shouldn't be a problem.

2. symlinked the java executables, like 'java', 'javac' and the rest into a directory that was in my path, like '/usr/bin'. I found that just exporting the original java directory into my path just didn't work. I don't know why, as I quadruple checked it and have successfully added directories to my path in the past.

Anyway, it works now.

Well, it did work, but then I upgraded to Mozilla 1.3, and so I need the Blackdown Java for GCC 3.2, and haven't got round to downloading it yet
