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.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
