Full Version: Jvm Plug-in For Mozilla (red Hat 9)
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support

I downloaded the JRE 1.4.2_02 from and when I ran the installer, the JRE was installed in /usr/java/jre1.4.2_02/

Now when I go to:

A dialog box appears stating:

"This page contains information of a type (application / x-java-vm) that can only be viewed by the appropriate plug-in."

I am running Mozilla 1.2.1 on Red Hat 9.0.

If anyone can help me with this problem, I would be very grateful.

All the best,

You have to add a symbolic link to java in the mozilla plugin directory.

Have a look at
On my Red Hat 9.0 Linux distro, (logging in as root), my JRE Plug-in is located in:


My Mozilla 1.2.1's plug-in directory's path is:


I followed the instructions from the link in the previous post by:

> cd /usr/lib/mozilla-1.2.1/plugins
> ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_02/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/

Now, I wrote a & an HelloWorldApplet.html file and
compiled the applet with the javac compiler.

When I run the appletviewer like this:

> appletviewer HelloWorldApplet.html

The simple HelloWorldApplet works...

But however, if I open the HelloWorldApplet.html file using Mozilla, the same
error message from the first post appears...

I also went to Yahoo! Games and I keep getting the same error...

If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated....
