java doesn't work
Last modified: 2008-01-11 12:09:59 EST
Description of problem:any webpage visited w/ FireFox 184.108.40.206.x86_64 not only
doesn't render anything that java should be rendering, it sends me to Sun to get
& install the java plugin
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):220.127.116.11
How reproducible:try it for yourself, 64-bit FC8 & Firefox 18.104.22.168, straight
from yum repo's ....
Steps to Reproduce:go to following URL:
1. you should get nothing except message about you need more plugins to view
Actual results:no picture of radar loop, just message about needing more plugins
Expected results:picture of radar loop for HSV, Al. ....
Additional info:I have box-stock java installed, as well as JRE.1.6.3 from Sun.
I have a total of 4 different versions of java installed (1.4.2, 1.5.n,
1.7.icedtea), 3 from repos by yum, 1 from sun. None (apparently) work ....
browser says it is looking in /usr/java for its java code, that's where the
JRE.1.6.3 is installed, along w/ NS7 i386 plugin lib.so file w/ correct name
(that browser is looking for) ....
Well .... it's working now :-/. I have done some cleanups/upgrades in the last
couple of weeks & the above URL works AOK for me now. I uninstalled a bunch of
32-bit (i386) stuff, & I think some java got thrown out in the process. I have
nothing but 64-bit Java (x86_64) now, had some of both before. Anywho, I guess
you can close this one out, call it pilot error ....
Thanks for letting us know.
