Why don't you install from source some thing like this create a folder /usr/local/java download the java source from the sun microsystems website (https://sdlc1d.sun.com/ECom/EComActionServlet;jsessionid=4EDB4987ECCEBC4C4488D18F24CA7D84) eg jre-1_5_0_09-linux-i586-rpm.bin and move it to /usr/local/java make the file executable chmod 0777 jre-1_5_0_09-linux-i586-rpm.bin then run ./jre-1_5_0_09-linux-i586-rpm.bin to install the rest is all interactive at some stage it will ask the path of your browsers and you can patch the plug-ins for as many browsers as you have hope this helps Regards -- Peter Nyamukusa Technical Manager Africa Online Swaziland Tel: +268-404-4705 Fax: +268-404-4783 Cell: +268-647-6448 E-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] AIM: petenya _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
