    Default JAVA plugin for 64bit browsers


    This JDK (JRE) version is still in development, but for me it works and
    is very stable. If You have any problems, go to this 'forum'
    (http://forums.java.net/jive/index.jspa?categoryID=1).


    1.Download the latest JDK (JRE) for 64bit systems from this 'site'
    (http://download.java.net/jdk6/). This is the 3rd build of JDK (JRE) SE
    6u12 (I always download the binary .rpm file; if You prefer, You can
    download the binary self-extracting file, and find the install
    instructions 'here' (http://tinyurl.com/3cvhdm))
    2.Now open terminal, and (as root) go to the destination, were You
    store the downloaded files:

    s-u- -r-o-o-t--
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - -c-d- -<-d-o-w-n-l-o-a-d- -f-o-l-d-e-r-)-

    3.When You're there, You have to set the executable permissions:

    c-h-m-o-d- -a-+-x- -<-f-i-l-e->-.-b-i-n-

    4.And then run the binary:

    .-/-<-f-i-l-e->-.-b-i-n-

    5.The installation will start. You'll be prompt to accept the license
    agreement.
    6.The last thing to do is to set up a link to You're browser (I have
    only tried this plugin on Firefox 3.04, but it should work for Opera as
    well):
    -
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - -l-n- ---s-
    -/-u-s-r-/-j-a-v-a-/-j-d-k-1-.-6-.-0-_-1-2-/-j-r-e-/-l-i-b-/-a-m-d-6-4-/-l-i-b-n-p-j-p-2-.-s-o-
    -/-u-s-r-/-l-i-b-6-4-/-b-r-o-w-s-e-r---p-l-u-g-i-n-s-/-l-i-b-n-p-j-p-2-.-s-o-


    And You are done.

    Worked great with Opensuse 11.0. Be sure to update Firefox and xulrunner
    to the x64 version.
    Opera: didn't work for me... :~(
    Thx anyway!

    What's the advantage (if any) of this over the IcedTea plugin which was
    installed by default on my 11.1 x86_64 system? I don't take much notice
    of Java but I've only just started using 64bit Linux so have been poking
    around a bit at stuff like browser plugins. I've pointed Firefox at a
    few Java applets I know of and they've all worked.
