Description of problem:
Despite java being properly available (soft link in the plugins directory), it
was not detected by 0.9.8-2
Using 0.9.8 directly from mozilla.org worked however.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install mozilla 0.9.8-2
2. Go to java web-site and let the java plugin install automatically
3. Restart mozilla
Actual Results: Java is not available - when going to a site requiring java it
goes through the install procedure again (and again, etc).
Expected Results: java should be available after first install
0.9.8 direct from mozilla works fine.
There is the soft link from the plugins directory to the java lib.
Java was installed from jre-1.3.1_02.i386.rpm and automatically from netscape
(both were 1.3.1 at least).
Calling /usr/lib/mozilla/mozilla-bin after manually setting up LD_LIBRARY_PATH
gave a message that the plugin failed to initialisation because of a missing
symbol - I have lost the record of which symbol it was, but it seemed to be
associated with the libxpcom.so library.
Does this still happen with 0.9.9-x from rawhide?
I just tried 0.9.9-7 from rawhide, after manually making the link to java in the
plugins directory, all seems to work properly.
