Re: f8 firefox and jre plugin

Hello Fran├žois,

I think it depents on which architecture you are running on.

If it is on x86_64, then things seem to be a bit complicated.

In my case, I have 2 FF kits installed:

        # rpm -q --qf '%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}.%{ARCH}\n' firefox

FYI this is my working ysstem

x86_64 on F6.

jre is Java(TM) Plug-in Blackdown-1.4.2-03 from http://www.blackdown.org/java-linux.html

Normal call of "/usr/bin/firefox" usually calls the x86_64 variant of
it. Unfortunately, there is no x86_64 variant of the SUN JRE Moz/FF
Java plugin, so the idea is to use the "nspluginwrapper" which allows
the i386 SUN JRE Java Plugin to be used by the x86_64 FF. The command
to make this work is "mozilla-plugin-config -i".

Interestingly enough, I also have 2 variants of "nspluginwrapper"
installed and I don't know if this is supposed to be "automagic" . . .
obviously not, since I can't get the SUN JRE Plugin to run under FF - Maybe somebody else has an idea?
