Re: Mozilla and Java Plugin

i just download the j2re bin from java.sun.com and unpack it to a
"random" directory - say /usr/share/j2re1.4.1 or something... the way
to link it to mozilla/netscape is by going to the
/usr/local/mozilla/plugins directory and doing 
$ln -s /usr/share/j2re1.4.1/plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so
that will create a symbolic link to the plugin...  to be technical and
all i guess you can create a sym link /usr/bin/java ->
/etc/alternatives/java -> /usr/share/j2re1.4.1/bin/java
of course you can't do that in one shot, and you don't have to do it to
use Yahoo! chat, but that is the "way" to run java programs on your
machine ( at least it is on mine )...
