    Mozilla 1.3 + j2re-1.4.1_02.tgz / Slackware 9.0

    Ive got my Slackware 9.0 box running great except Ive cant java working with mozilla, no matter what version of java I use, when ever I create my symlink like so (ln -sf /usr/lib/j2re1.4.1_01/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla-1.3/plugins) I get an error saying this...

    LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library /usr/lib/mozilla-1.3/plugins/javaplugin_oji.so [/usr/lib/mozilla-1.3/plugins/javaplugin_oji.so: cannot open shared object file: Too many levels of symbolic links]

    Any help is appreciated
    Thanks

    If your Mozilla was compiled with gcc 3.2 then your java must be compiled with gcc 3.2. You can compile it yourself or just download the Blackdown version. http://www.blackdown.org

    I was just about to add that. Yes im using Blackdown Java version 1.4.1_01 and ive added the PATH, and followed the directions, but still nothing. But thanks for the quick reply, I appreciate it

    I am running the same setting as you, except i got my java environment directly from the Sun website. If you do it this way, the path to the java plugin should be java/plugin/i386/ns610$

    psychen6@Orisha:/usr/lib/java/plugin/i386/ns610$

    Then I did ln -s /usr/lib/java/plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla-1.3/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

    Hope that helps.

    Can you just copy libjavaplugin_oji.so into the mozilla plugin folder directly? That seems to work for me with Slack 8.0!

    Is it crashing with the Blackdown version or the one from the Sun website?
