    Hmm, Java(TM) Plug-in 1.6.0_04-b12 works for me.

    Snippet from my Admin Diary follows:

    #************** Start jre-6u4-linux-i586_install.txt **************
    #*
    #* Download jre from http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp
    #* pick Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 4 download
    #*
    #* Note: /accounts/downloads is my browser download directory and
    #* assumes /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins for plugin installs.
    #*
    #*
    #* konqueror users need to click Settings, Configure Konqueror
    #* Java & JavaScript, and set Path to Java executable, or java:
    #* java
    #* click Apply, OK.
    #*
    #************************************************* ***************

    exit 0 # just in case a newbie tries to run this as a script

    As a user, click up a terminal and login as root as follows:
    su - root

    alias edt=gedit



    chmod +x /accounts/downloads/jre-6u4-linux-i586-rpm.bin
    cd /accounts/downloads
    urpme jre
    /bin/rm -f /etc/init.d/jexec.rpmsave

    /accounts/downloads/jre-6u4-linux-i586-rpm.bin
    yes

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

    ln -s /usr/java/jre1.6.0_04/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
    ls -al

    #******************************************
    #* disable the new java system service/deamon
    #*******************************************

    service jexec stop
    chkconfig --del jexec
    chkconfig jexec off

    edt /etc/init.d/jexec
    and add
    exit 0
    under the header comment block.
    Click Save/quit

    #******************************************

    If you are running 2008.0 or 2008.1 64-bit, this is what you need.

    java-1.7.0-icedtea-1.7.0.0-24.614.1mdv2008.1
    java-1.7.0-icedtea-plugin-1.7.0.0-24.614.1mdv2008.1

    Cheers!
