    Is your system x86 or x86_64? There are different plugin directories for each architecture. You must have the one that works with your browser linked to its plugin folder.

    sun has not yet made a 64 bit version of java....hence, you can't
    install it for use by firefox..

    install the 32 bit version of firefox and java and it will work (just
    as fast and wonderful as will the 64 bit version--if it _ever_ works)..

    i loaded up SUSE 64 about three years ago, but got tired of all the
    little extra stuff i had to do...and, when i loaded 10.2 i just went
    pure 32...much simpler, and just as fast unless you have a million
    line database and 4 Gig of ram...read around, and decide for yourself
    what is the best way for _you_..

    java-1_5_0-gcj-compat works fine for my 64 bit browsers. You can also use the java-1_6_0-sun-plugin, which is i586 arch, on an openSUSE x86_64 platform. Download a Firefox tarball from Mozilla. Extract it to wherever you like and run the firefox shell script or firefox-bin executable from there. It will use your existing mozilla profile. It is 32 bit and will also work with the Adobe flash plugin.

    I initially tried to download 32 bit version. For some strange reason download was 4.9G and kernel was corrupted, so I had to download 64 bit version.

    Now I am able tto download 32 bit version and java and other applications are working fine.

    Thanks to everyone fr helping.

    P.S.: Is there a way I can close the thread ?
