    Hey, put instructions in your Admin Diary, sub old version numbers for
    new, simple cut paste. Example snippet from my admin diary:

    #************** Start jre-6u1-linux-i586_install.txt *********************
    #* Download jre from http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp
    #*

    cd /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
    /bin/rm -f libjavaplugin_oji.so

    the java site but for some reason it didn't work. Cheers,

    The instructions do say to use a symlink and not to copy the .so file
    across. Was that perhaps the mistake?

    So, how are we supposed to know what you have, done or did not do.
    You need to read http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html

    Tell you what, click up a terminal
    su - root

    urpmi mlocate
    /etc/cron.daily/mlocate.cron
    locate libjavaplugin_oji.so <---- need results from this command

    Then I want you to do a
    ls -al (on each location from above)
    and show the result if it is a link. chopped down Example snippet:

    $ locate libjavaplugin_oji.so
    /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

    $ ls -al /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so ->
    /usr/java/jre1.6.0_01/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

    NOTE: if you do a ls -al and it is blinking, it is a bad link.

    Sorry for being so vague. The post was written out of frustration and
    little thought. Here is the result of the requested commands.

    I have previous to this uninsulated and reinstalled both firefox and java
    thinking there was some underlying problem however no joy.


    # locate libjavaplugin_oji.so
    /usr/java/jre1.6.0_01/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
    /usr/java/jre1.6.0_01/plugin/i386/ns7-gcc29/libjavaplugin_oji.so
    /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so



    ls -al /usr/java/jre1.6.0_01/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 137085 Mar 14 20:24 /usr/java/jre1.6.0_01/plugin/
    i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so*


    ls -al /usr/java/jre1.6.0_01/plugin/i386/ns7-gcc29/libjavaplugin_oji.so
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 236012 Mar 14 20:24 /usr/java/jre1.6.0_01/plugin/
    i386/ns7-gcc29/libjavaplugin_oji.so*


    ls -al /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 58 Jun 23 10:16 /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
    libjavaplugin_oji.so -> /usr/java/jre1.6.0_01/plugin/i386/ns7/
    libjavaplugin_oji.so*

    Thanks for your time

    Well there is the link that I would have thought fixed your problem.

    Since that did not fix it, let's try something else. We'll create a
    link in firefox's plugin directory.

    I would like to see which firefox is executed, so do a
    type firefox
    and
    ls -al the-result-here

    Now you need to find the firebox plugin directory, do a
    locate plugins/libnullplugin.so | grep firefox

    On my system I have,

    /local/opt/firefox-2.0.0.4/plugins/libnullplugin.so <=== my custom install
    /usr/lib/firefox-2.0.0.3/plugins/libnullplugin.so <== initial install
    /usr/lib/firefox-2.0.0.4/plugins/libnullplugin.so <==== urpmi update

    You might get into firefox and see which one you are running,
    Look under the Help tab, About firefox.
    Close/exit firefox.

    You then set default (cd) to that firefox's plugin directory and create the
    link with the command
    ln -s /usr/java/jre1.6.0_01/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so


    Since I did a local install, I would
    cd /local/opt/firefox-2.0.0.4/plugins
    and create the link.


    Guessing you do a
    cd /usr/lib/firefox-2.0.0.4/plugins/libnullplugin.so
    ln -s /usr/java/jre1.6.0_01/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
