This is actually a Linux (Fedora 8) Question. It uses Terminal, which is similar to OS X's Terminal.app So I figure someone may be able to help me out. I am attempting to install Java runtime environment on Linux, and following the Instructions on the Java site. I can make the .bin file executable, I can run it in Terminal, View the license agreement, and Install Java in a directory. The problem comes when attempting to create a "Symbolic Link" to the Java plugin, from the firefox Directory. "ln -s <path to java file.so>" "./javaplugin.so" After doing this, I get "Segmentation Error" If I try again, I get Error creating symbolic link: File Exists (and it does exist there in the firefox plugin directory) As of now, firefox will not even start. Does anyone know what could be causing this?
