Default linux-firefox and java plugin

Hi everyone.It's my first post here.Wish this forum become the new BSD forums which is now "closing"!


I installed linux-firefox 2.0.0.12 in order to have fully functional flash, java plugins etc.linux-flash plugin7 installed corectly and works great!!!I cannot say the same thing about linux-blackdown-jdk14 as every time an applet is loading firefox crashes!!
I installed that version of java because firefox says:

Code:
this is a pre-compiled Linux/i386 version, able to run plugins from that
platform.  This port is compatible with the Flash plugin from
ports/www/linux-flashplugin7/ and with the Java plugin from
ports/java/linux-blackdown-jdk14/.
Do I have to make any other changes except from creating the symbolic link in firefox plugins folder??I' m saying this because for linux-sun-jdk I read this

Code:
This Java VM will attempt to obtain some system information by
accessing files in linux's procfs.  You must install the Linux
emulation procfs filesystem for this to work correctly.  The JVM
will exhibit various problems otherwise.  This can be accomplished
by adding the following line to your /etc/fstab file:

 linprocfs   /compat/linux/proc   linprocfs   rw   0  0

and then, as root, executing the commands:

kldload linprocfs
mount /compat/linux/proc

Installing flash 7 is actually trivial task. All you need is to fetch 2 files:

flashplayer.xpt
libflashplayer.so

off the Adobe site, put them in the Firefox plugin dir and now you should have Firefox with Flash plugin installed

You did not read my post correctly
I said flash works perfectly and I just mentioned it.The whole point was with the java problem lol

//btw:Ok regarding flash the method you propose is musch easier.Could you write some places where I can just find those files?Does this method work for flash 9?...Next time less effort for installing flash but let's focus to the java problem

Problem solved as long as I installed the newest linux-firefox through ports system(2.0.0.14).It seems there were compatibility issues with linux-blackdown-jdk14 and linux-firefox!!
