Sorry, another one with x-java-vm problem..

Ok, ok, I agree with you: there is already a lot of stuff about this topic, but I've tried the main ways explained and I can't make it work...

First I used the:

"Now, to set java to work with Mozilla, issue (as root) this command:

ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/ /*/
*Your Mozilla plugin directory "

but nothing changed, no plugins installed in Mozilla's page, no java applet in the web...
Yes, I didn't made everything... I mean I already had the RPM version of JRE while the author of this post says not to download it.

So I tried the second way, making a directory in my home:

"the way I did it is following

7) mkdir ~/.mozilla/plugins
8) cd ~/.mozilla/plugins
9) ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2/plugin/i386/ns610/"

Perfect !!! Now I see the Java plugins in Mozilla, but when I try to open a web page with a java applet Mozilla suddenly crashes...

Could you help me please?

Thanks in advance

ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2/plugin/i386/ns610/
if this gets the java plugin listed, then try
ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2/plugin/ns610/ your_mozilla_installation_directory/plugins/

(see, there is ns610 and ns610-gcc32) and remove the link from your ~/.mozilla/plugins directory.

Now try if the java plugin works. For some reason, I had to run mozilla as root once to get it to work. Maybe the same for you.

Talking Thanks !

Thank you all guys !
I preferred the quatsch's way because I have alredy installed JRE from Sun, and it must work !
So you were right: I'm using Mozilla 1.2.1 then I have to install the plugin compiled with gcc 2.95, the one provided in ns610 directory.

Thanks again !

just in case anyone is interested
I installed Netscape 7.1 and it wants the one in "ns610-gcc32"
while Mozilla wants the one in "ns610"
they are not interchangeable as I found out
