    fc4 x86_64 java plugin firefox 1.06 troubles


    Hi all,

    Be sure I've Googled prior to post ...

    I have :
    downloaded the jre-1_5_0_04-linux-i586.bin package
    installed it
    Code:
    sh jre-1_5_0_04-linux-i586.bin
    moved it to /opt/
    Code:
    mv jre1.5.0_04 /opt/
    copied the libjavaplugin_oji.so plugin link to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
    Code:
    ln -s /opt/jre1.5.0_04/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
    copied the libjavaplugin_oji.so plugin link to other Mozilla directories I've found :
    /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/
    /usr/lib64/mozilla-1.7.10/plugins
    /usr/lib64/firefox-1.0.6/plugins

    Restarted firefox and even the PC.
    when I type aboutlugins in Firefox , I only see libnullplugin.so

    Could you please assist ? I'm stumped ...

    answer is :
    DO not use X86_64 Firefox version.
    Use i386 one and install plugins, it will work.
