Hey Boys and Girls,

Just put a fresh install of Slackware 9.1 with 2.4.22 on a lappy here. Upgraded Fluxbox 0.1.14 to Fluxbox 0.9.8, and installed Firefox using firefox-0.8-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.gz and of course, it needs java, right? So I followed Rob's simple instructions from the link provided in post #3 like this
Code:
$ cd ~/firefox/plugins
$ ln -s /usr/lib/j2sdk1.4.2_01/jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so
and then browsed to the site thebulter4 posted, which is http://www.dslreports.com/stest and clicked on verify your java version and hey,

Slackware, baby -- it just works!!!

If you can't do that and get java working in Firefox, it's probably a problem within your distro -- time to switch to Slack!


Edit: that was so easy, but even following all the instructions at http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/faqs/java.html I cannot get it to install in W2K...

As several other users, I cannot get Java to work in any browser or Firefox.

I am running:

Mandrake 10 - Clean install

I have:

1. Deleted all sym links in the Firefox directory (besides libnull)

2. I have installed j2re1.4.2_01

3. Enabled Java in Firefox

4. Closed all instances of Firefox. As root, created a sym link to the following path: ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_01/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so

5. Restarted X

6. Not working.

I have only ever got Java to run in Fedora and it took me some time. I'm not too sure why this is so difficult?

Any ideas?

I'm sure most of us were using the link posted...

Delete all sym links and Follow these directions.

http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/faqs/java.html

Making sure to run this command to link: ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_04/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so

note the ns610-gcc32 included in the path and VERSION of JAVA.
