Errrrrrrrrrrr have you tried buying an 32 bit
CPU recently ? think you
may be in for a shock
Most x86_64 CPUs support 32-bit very well you know. Don't all these new shiny
64-bit boxes come with 32-bit MS Vista? That should be an indication of how
MS and PC-vendors feel about 64-bit on the desktop.
I run 64-bit openSUSE myself on my primary box and have for some time. So I'm
not agitating against doing that. I'm just slightly annoyed that people act
all surprised and complain when they run into some problems with proprietary
software I guess. Don't understand how anyone remotely involved can still be
surprised that these issues exist.
Maybe I was a bit harsh though, I'll try to keep my bitterness off the list.
I do not have the slightest problem with it.
Where is Firefox situated?
Or better; what is the command to ask bash where it lives?
monkey9@tribal-sfn2:~> rpm -qa | grep mozillafirefox
monkey9@tribal-sfn2:~> rpm -qa | grep MozillaFirefox
monkey9@tribal-sfn2:~> set | egrep MozillaFirefox
monkey9@tribal-sfn2:~> set | egrep '(MozillaFirefox)'
monkey9@tribal-sfn2:~> echo MozillaFirefox
monkey9@tribal-sfn2:~> where MozillaFirefox
bash: where: command not found
monkey9@tribal-sfn2:~> whereis MozillaFirefox
you see not obvious...
Indeed, there are some things written about it in the past, and as i
recall we all agreed there should be fit a 64bit version of java in a
64bit firefox, on a 64bit platform..

It's pretty simple:
Install MozillaFirefox, java-1_5_0-sun-plugin and java-1_5_0-sun in
their 32bit versions from openSUSE and all is working automatically.
Just about two weeks late on this.. Hope somebody will see it.
I am also trying to get Java working on my 64 bit Firefox on 10.3
(MozillaFirefox-126.96.36.199-1.5) I also have java-1.5.0 and java-1.6.0
installed. Don't know if they are 32 bit or not. They have many many files
scattered everywhere. eg:
bob@Easystreet:~> whereis java
java: /usr/bin/java /etc/java /usr/lib64/java /usr/bin/X11/java
But there is no /java directory in either /usr or /usr/local
Now, I attempt to install the plugin but I am offered different
1.5.0 and 1.6.0 in i586 or x86_64. Don't know which I need.
Not knowing what to do I went to the java site and downloaded the
jre-6u3-linux-amd64.rpm but did not install it because the install
instructions say it should be installed in /usr/java or /usr/local/java,
neither of which I have. And, I don't want to scatter more unknown java
throughout my system..
Should I uninstall the two javas that I have and start over fresh? Hope
somebody will straighten out my confusion here.
Have a nice day,
M9. Now, is the only time that exists.
