Having problems installing the java plugin for either netscape or mozilla.

System:
RH7.2
j2sdk1.4.2_04 (installed to /opt/j2sdk1.4.2_04 )

1) Set JAVA_HOME to /opt/j2sdk1.4.2_04

2) Created symbolic link to the plugin in netscapes plugin directory
Plugin directory: /usr/lib/netscape/plugins (Link is here)
Target: /opt/j2sdk1.4.2_04/jre/plugin/i386/ns4/libjavaplugin.so

(Also tried the same thing with mozilla. At least mozilla tells me it cant find the plug in.)

When I try to run my applet, get "Bad major version number"


Please help me.

Probably you're having issues with C compiler version incompatibilities. Between RH 7 and the current OS releases like FC3, gcc went from version 2 to version 3 (with some odd things done at Red Hat along the way).

You might want to check the FAQs at mozilla.org.


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
