failed to do anything other than to say 'Loading Applet'.

In the Konqueror browser settings:

	Show Java console is checked (fails without it as well)
	Use Security Manager is checked (failed without it as well)
	Showdown Applet Server when inactive is checked (same here)

i don't know which Java version you have on your machine. You have to make sure that the  
IBMJava2 1.3.1 from AS is installed. 
It works fine for me with IBMJava2 -.3.1-3 from AS2.1. 

Comment 2 Landon Curt Noll 2003-03-29 19:07:18 UTC
I looked for IBMJava2 under RH Advanced RPM Search and found none. 
I looked for IBMJava2 under other RPM search tools and found none. 
Please supply a URL to this "IBMJava2 -.3.1-3" rpm so that I 
can test it. 

Comment 3 Than Ngo 2003-04-03 13:10:48 UTC
Hmm, you find it on CD in AS2.1. if you don't have AS2.1, i don't know, where
you could get it. perhaps from IBM ftp server.

Please try the java version from Sun. it works fine with RHL 9. You can download
j2re-1_4_1_02-fcs-linux-i586.rpm  directly from Sun ftp server.
