    What Java is eventually all going to be released under the GPL, only portions of it are now. There is no official 64-bit plugin right now. Either you use a 32-bit Firefox in 64-bit Linux, or I believe you use Iced Tea, which provides a 64-bit java plugin.

    Iced Tea does not seem to work either. It's been something I have been struggling with for ages.
    The best way around it I have found is to download Firefox from the Mozilla site, unzip it to your home directory and run it from there, you can run 2 versions of Firefox if you want! You can put any plug-ins you require into the /home/username/firefox/plugins directory and everything works fine.
    I guess it's something we just have to wait for, complete 64 compatablity with Java plugins.

    Actually it's OpenJDK now.

    OpenJDK works with 64bit firefox in 10.3... but only as far as
    OpenJDK works.... which is NOT with every Java applet out there.
    But still... it does work for some.

    I tried both icetea and openjdk in openSUSE 11, none of them work with firefox 3 beta5. So I guess the best way is to use pmccrackan's way so far.

    Yea I'm using Open JDK right now and most applets run fine, It's really nice and seems to run way better than real java. Heck, even Frostwire now works, which is great. Now if I could only get Gnash to work I would have only MP3 support to ditch.

    64 bit Packages exist for Openjdk and Icedtea, Openjdk is the preferred one apparently. I have tried both packages on RC2 (which has updated itself to Gold by the way ) and not had any success with running the test applet an the Java web site.

    Don't use the test applet I never had much joy on that either it confirms nothing test on sites with java applets.

    I have to agree when using icedtea it doesn't work on all but does work on most, still think easiest is 32bit ff. Though I'm intrigued last time I looked I couldn't find it for suse.
    Man first, have a try at Info, have a look at Wiki, if all that fails Scroogle!!!!!
    If I've helped click on the Rep button I don't know what it does but it sounds cool.

    when you need to run a java applet use konqueror

    I tried both openJDK & icetea in openSUSE 11 rc2, none of them working with the java enabled site. So I just installed 32bit.
