    installation of Java on Fedora 9 x86_64

    After a long time looking for a solution in order to install JAva on a 64bits installation of Fedora 9, i've found one, and give it to you here (thx Andreia).
    all the tutoz i've found until now didn't work. It's that the diference was made by the installation of the library libXtst.i386 and the creation of a nez directory for firefox plugins. Curtam !

    #add i386 repository
    #create and edit the configuration file of the repo

    gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-i386.repo


    #copy and paste those infomations in that file and save it

    [fedora-i386]
    name=Fedora $releasever - i386
    failovermethod=priority
    baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/$releasever/Everything/i386/os/
    mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-$releasever&arch=i386
    enabled=1
    gpgcheck=1
    includepkgs=firefox
    gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora

    mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=updates-released-f$releasever&arch=i386
    enabled=1
    gpgcheck=1

    # remove the default java installation

    yum -y erase java-1.6.0-openjdk java-1.0.6-openjdk-plugin

    # remove the default Firefox installation (64bits)

    yum -y erase firefox.x86_64

    # install Firefox 32bits

    yum -y install firefox.i386

    # add this library

    yum -y install libXtst.i386

    # download java

    # install the .bin

    chmod +x jre*
    sh ./jre*

    # make the links with firefox plugins

    mkdir -p /usr/lib/firefox-3.0/plugins
    ln-s /usr/java/jre*/plugins/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

    Err .... what is exactly wrong with openjdk that comes with fedora9 x86_64 ?
    Mine works fine, even on sites that requires Java applets.

    jsalvo : please try that applet ; www.bb.com.br ; the virtual keyboard doesn work good with openjdk
    and some application of face book too...
    marcrblevins : for those applications, that solution where the only i found and where completely posted nowhere, so i posted it, and choosed fedora forums because that i thought that should be the place where people should look first. know i doubt about that. make me happy and get yourself a windows so you should enjoy call every one a jinker !

    Thanks tdfranc,
    This took me forever to find. I kept trying to create a symlink for libjavaplugin_jni.so

    For everyone running sun's version of java on x86_64, following the instructions on this site worked for me!

    Sun's java plugin installation:

    Code:
    # echo $JAVA_HOME
    /usr/local/jdk
    # cd /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins
    # ln -s /usr/local/jdk/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so .
    Nothing more!
    Disc space -- the final frontier!
