Well, I did a removal of various self-installed firefox ..
and also remove the exclusion of firefox package from
[main] cachedir=/var/cache/yum keepcache=0 debuglevel=2 logfile=/var/log/yum.log distroverpkg=redhat-release tolerant=1 exactarch=1 obsoletes=1 gpgcheck=1 plugins=1 #exclude=opera,openoffice*,firefox,xulrunner exclude=opera,openoffice* # Note: yum-RHN-plugin doesn't honor this. metadata_expire=1h installonly_limit = 5 # PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo # in /etc/yum.repos.d
yum install firefox
Now, I want to add JRE support / plugins into this browser.
From my reading , it now need “New Generation plugins” of java plugin
instead of :
ln -s /usr/java/latest/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
which was working before this.. but not with Firefox 3.6.13
it now require at least java 1.6.0-18 JRE/JDK.
which read as java 1.6 update 18.
So, I grab that java 1.6 update 18 from java.com website in the
old release archive.
then I just need to do the following for ..
remove the old one..
rm usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so -rf
and add to cuurent user plugins directory as follows
cd ~/.mozilla ln -s /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_18/jre/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so .
so.. it now detected..
now.. my applet re-appear again.
