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.
