I'm running 64-bit. Flash works. Don't know about Java. What's a
good site to test that on?


Just following on from the python-gtk fiasco mentioned in another
thread, I went to the above site and did THE TEST :-) , and, just as
with the business of python-gtk, I am now totally c-o-n-f-u-s-e-d, to
put it politely :-( .

Doing the test resulted in me being given the message, "Oooops, you are
using the wrong version of java" - or words to this effect. So I go
looking for the "right" version of java.

In YaST2 Software Management I can see that I have java-1_5_0-sun
installed but just a little way down there is java-1_6_0-sun staring me
in the face.

Both versions come from repository so why
hasn't YaST2 upgraded java to the newer 1.6 version (as indicated in
the result of THE TEST)?

You need Java-1_7. It is called iced tea or something if you are running
64bit. Check the archives about a month ago.
