Can't get JRE to work in Firefox on Mandriva LE 2005
Ok, I downloaded jre-1_5_0_02-linux-i586-rpm.bin and did get that installed, so now the installed file is under:
I was told I need to link to that file, so I changed the dir to the mozilla plugins dir, which is:
And then, I did the whole installation thing according to Sun's site:
ln -s /home/me/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
Then, I was told to go to Edit / Preferences / Advanced to enable Java, but there is no option for that in Advanced.
While I was putting the link for JRE into the plugin dir, I removed the older version of JRE. The old version of java under Konsole was blue, but what I just installed is flashing red. Now, I have no Java and I have no idea how to configure the newer version on my comp. I am stumped! BTW, my Firefox version is 1.0.2. Any help would be appreciated!

ln -s /usr/java/JRE/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
is the path to the libjavaplugin
copy the link created into the fire-fox/plugin folder.
I am new to linux however got luck with this. I am sure someone will so refine this roughy.
