Hello Allen,

As far as I can see on, Java 1.6 update 11 (the version
currently installed on my laptop) is the latest available.

Or did you have something else in mind ?

For some time now (a few months), I've had problems accessing some (not
all !) java-based web servicse: the applet won't start, and the system
typically displays a high CPU load.

Originally, I linked it with the upgrade to "update10" of the Sun Java
plugin, but reverting to update9 (or even to Java1.5 for that matter)
didn't resolve the issue. I was hoping that applying update11 (I just
did) would restore the service, but it didn't either.

My setup:
- OpenSuSE 11.00, 32bit, fully patched
- Firefox 3.0.5
- java-1_6_0-sun-plugin-1.6.0.u11-0.1

Example of applets/services that work:
- iLO virtual media
- Juniper SSG5 firewall admin interface
- HP Procurve switch (5406) web-based management interface
- some silly clock applet

Example of applets/services that don't:
- iLO remote console (has been flaky since moving the FF 3, but used to
mostly work)
- Juniper Secure Access VPN (used to work fine)
- Planisware OPX2 Intranet Server (not tested before)

Java in general (i.e. locally, not through the browser) works fine.

Has anyone else seen this ?

Any help is appreciated.


Cheers. Bye.

Ph. A.
