DOSC TWiki snapshot as of mid-2005


EnableJavaForMozillaAndRH8 has a plugin finder which should make this easy but it just didn't want to work for me. Here is what I did:

get j2re-1_4_1_02-linux-i586-rpm.bin from .

run it to extract the .rpm:

chmod +x j2re-1_4_1_02-linux-i586-rpm.bin

install the .rpm:

rpm -Uv j2re-1_4_1_02-fcs-linux-i586.rpm

link the appropriate plugin in mozilla's plugin directory:

ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.1_02/plugin/i386/ns610/ /usr/lib/mozilla-1.0.1/plugins/
restart mozilla. Now go to Help->About Plug-ins and the java plugin ought to be there. Congratulations.

There are instructions for debian here:
