Description Thomas Fitzsimmons 2004-04-12 16:01:36 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.2)

Description of problem:
The plugin from IBMJava2's 1.4.1 SR2 release (libjavaplugin_oji.so)
causes Mozilla to hang while loading an applet-bearing page.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install IBMJava2-JRE-1.4.1-12
2. run mozilla
3. visit a page that contains an applet

Actual Results:  Mozilla hangs

Expected Results:  Applet should display properly

Additional info:

I expected the old version of the Java plugin to work on a 2.1AS
system.   The 1.3.1 libjavaplugin_oji.so works fine, but the 1.4.1
libjavaplugin_oji.so causes the described behaviour.  Any ideas?

Test IBMJava2-JRE packages are available in:

compiler whackage?
Comment 2 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2004-04-13 11:50:09 EDT
Do you have a 2.1AS machine you could test this on?  I want to make
sure it's not a problem with my test machine.
Comment 3 Corey T 2004-05-26 00:26:45 EDT
I dont believe it's a problem with the above packages.  I am also
getting hangs in Mozilla that came with Fedora Core 2 and also with
0.8 release of Firefox.  I do not have this issue with the KDE browser
konqueror though.  I do however believe it may be any embedded java or
even a scheduler problem as I do not see this on a Fedora Core 1
machine at all using the same versions of the software.  And I also do
not recall this happening in Fedora Core 2 Test 3 at except the last
Kernel update.
