Re: java not working with netscape 4.80

I would use rpm -q to check whether the installations are actually correct.

Here is a way to get some data.

Open a terminal window in X.

run netscape manually. /opt/netscape/netscape whatever it actually is.

Then go to a site that needs java.

You will see some error messages right in that terminal session.

Re: java not working with netscape 4.80

hi steven

rpm -q
and
. /opt/netscape/netscape
was not working at SuSE 8.2

I downloaded the netscape from

http://wp.netscape.com/download/archive/client_archive47x.html

did a fresh installation
after the link

ln -s /usr/lib/BlackdownJava2-1.4.1/jre/plugin/i386/netscape4/javaplugin.so /opt/netscape/plugins

and now is working !

kind regards
