Call 4 opinions

Ok, consider that I'm pondering (still) on the transition from *** to Linux for development, and I need to reach a working set. I've come to this.

When I download an applet, say this one

and I run this, I see the working applet.

When I get the source, and I compile this, and _try_ to run this, I get "applet not initialised"...

Spex of my Java setup:


java version "1.6.0_0"
IcedTea6 1.4 (fedora-15.b14.fc10-i386) Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_0-b14)
OpenJDK Client VM (build 14.0-b08, mixed mode)
Ok, here's a thought, either install a JDK 1.4 to compile stuff (effectively DOWNgrading Java) or upgrading the JRE (now @ upgrade 13 - as you can see, I dont use that one - yet)

What would the impact be for my system/other software? How do I proceed? Wil (for example) my open office still work.

Oh and ... I use FireFox 3.and.then.some...

All out-of-the-box stuff...

And, yes, I have to trust Linux a bit more, but an upgrade in *** _could_ potentioally kill the I'm "worried"...

Please give your insight, thanks!


BTW - there's a lot riding on this, if I dont see a solution soon, I may HAVE to revert to ***

of course not! I'm not moving to *** :-)

but you have to agree : Linux can be tuff...
What a woman! :D

Install the other version in a different place. You can always separate your system and development part.

Thanks, so : no "dead system" ...
It's a bin-file, possibly, it "knows" where to install itself, then.

Ok, let's give that a "whack" then :D

Why dont you upgrade your version of JDK ... As per me - it shouldn't have any adverse effects on any of your applications per se.

Hello! :D

You suggested the R-I-T-E thing :)

I upgraded the JRE, and I've started a thread

to allow others to save a little time when they hit that particular wall ;D - I've wasted two months on this...not all in one go, I DO have a job too, ya know...

So, yep, upgrading the JRE IS the way-out-of-the-rats-maze...the JRE supplied with Fedora 10 does'nt seem to be ... well ... ya-know...
