My second day with linux is today
I am trying to install the J2se/1.5.0_01 as a plugin to mozilla
java.com says to create a symbolic link to the Plug-in in the Mozilla plugins directory
The site is not specific enough for me it tells me
cd <Mozilla>/plugins ---- I did that
ln -s <JRE>/plugin/i386/ns7-gcc29/libjavaplugin_oji.so .
I do all that and I get what I think is the symbolic link to the lib file, but
the symbolic link is listed in boxed red while the other plugins are there in
This must mean that the link isn't working, but I get the message when I type
into the terminal "FILE EXISTS"
PS when I try double clicking on the downloaded jre-1_5_0_01-linux-i586.rpm
it says that package is already installed - but it won't tell me where
TOTAL newbie here and lost
Much appreciation for any help
