    jre crashing mozilla

    I copied /usr/java/jdk1.3.1_02/jre/plugin/i386/ns600 to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and when a page with java loaded mozilla crashed. Then i tried /usr/java/jdk1.3.1_02/jre/plugin/i386/ns4/ and at a java page it didnt even recognize there was java installed. Anyone have any ideas of what could be happening?

    Try making a symlink to the java plugin file instead of copying the file directly to the mozilla plugin directory. i.e.,

    in the /mozilla/plugins directory, do

    ln -s /usr/java/jdk1.3.1_02/jre/plugin/i386/ns600/

    That worked for me.

    I tried linking it with ln -s instead of actually coping and now when I go to a java page such as a speed test at dslreports it acts like no java has been installed. As in asking to install the plugin. What else could I have done wrong or what else could be going wrong?
