Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 150684
Firefox fails to open jnlp files properly with j2se 5.0 installed
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:16 EST
Description of problem: Sun Java jre-1.5 fails to run after install
on RHEL4WS. I have attempted to open .jnlp files through the firefox
browser with no success, I have also attempted to open javaws from
the terminal window using /usr/java/jre1.5.0_01/javaws/javaws. Java
webstart fails to open. I have also checked permissions to ensure
that the javaws file is executable.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.download Java jre1.5 from sun
3.attempt to launch javawebstart
launch java webstart
There seems to be a problem with javaws on RHEL4. I suspect all the
vendors use the same javaws binary, since both BEA and IBM's javaws
binaries also fail on startup. I've reported this to IBM. I'll mark
this bug report as a duplicate.
