Re: Installing java plugin in Mozilla?
re: There is no browser plugin for the PPC!
And I think I know why! Guess what is missing from the IBM java 1.4.2
ppc archives? The libjavaplugin_oji.so file needed to link to! No
wonder a lot of messages I read say use the Blackdown version. However,
it's only 1.3.1!
I did learn alot today. How to create a deb package from another
archive. The file is in the IBM jre 1.5 archive, so I may give that a
try, although the java-package 0.24 doesn't list it as supported. Guess
I could update to 0.27, been there today and done that.
So, if I install my ibm-j2re1.4 package I created, then after I install
Opera I should have a browser that supports java applets? I need a
browser that will work with most commercial sites in the US. They seems
to be IE specific and are picky about others.
