    Java VM


    Hi, I'm trying to install Java VM on redhat 9. I've followed various tutorials but still can't get it working. So far ive:

    downloaded and installed the binary package to /usr/java/

    made a link to libjavaplugin_oji.so in my firefox plugins directory

    No java extensions show up in firefox and im also trying to install limewire, this also says it cannot find a vm

    Any help is appreciated, thanks

    Your problem is not your firefox plugin. the Java Virtual Machine is not in your path. You'll want to find the bin directory ... maybe /usr/java/bin depending on your install. Add it to your path at the command line for testing:
    Code:
    export PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/bin
    then run
    Code:
    which java
    if that returns with the path to java then you got it right. Next thing is to edit your .bash_profile and add the /usr/java/bin to the $PATH every time you log in. make it look something like this (only adding the /usr/java/bin):

    Code:
    PATH=/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:$HOME/bin:/usr/java/bin
    export PATH
    [ [ SykkN alloc ] initWithThePowerTo: destroyYouAll ];
    /* Don\'t make me use it! */

    Ok, I've just done all the above but I still cannot view websites including java and still the firefox plugins list doesnt have any java extensions on there. Anymore ideas?

    I still have mozilla 1.2.1 installed also could this cause the problem?

    The FAQ listed below has worked for me. Take a look at it make sure that you did all of the steps listed. Maybe re-run the install with the supplied code.

    I know it's a fedora FAQ, but it shouldn't be a problem for RH9.
