I've been at this for a couple hours now, and I'm still lost. Making a looooong story really short - where is java supposed to be installed? (/usr/local? I don't have a /usr/java.) *Some* details: I figured that I just needed the plugin. Well, apparently there isn't one (not separate, on mozilla's plugin site). It seems that I have to sym-link to the .so file. However, I can't find it (even used the File Browser's 'search'). So, being that I have the basic 1.6.0 (no Update), I figured I'd just install 1.6.0U20. Well, that's no so easy when it's not the usual RPM, and you don't know where it should go. I did find a dir with a bunch of java entries: [root at sr1220 lib]# pwd /usr/lib [root at sr1220 lib]# ls java* java: java-1.3.1: java-1.4.0: java-1.4.1: java-1.4.2: java-1.5.0: java-1.6.0: java-ext: But, they're empty. The java wiki doesn't state a location, and neither http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/linux.html#Java nor http://www.java.com/en/download/help/linux_install.xml were of any help. (Btw, ~/.mozilla/plugins is empty - and I don't see it installed in /usr.) Every path I try, I keep hitting a roadblock.
