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:
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):
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?
Istructions I gave were to help install LimeWire.
AR sorry ! yea that helped for limewire but now its sticking at startup on the welcome screen any help on this or fixing java for firefox would be appreciated too. Thanks a lot for the previous post.
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.
Nope, I've done all those things and still cant view websites with java on. Thanks for the suggestion though.
Thanks Logan5, the link you posted finally got me through my final Linux/Firefox problem! I am a happy chappie! :D
