Install Java Plugins.

Fedora 8 Having Three Different Options for Java :

  • Official :Sun Java,
  • Open Source GNU: gcj
  • Open Jdk

The standard installation of Fedora 8 will install IcedTea which is based on OpenJDK. This is much more complete than GNU gcj, but may not behave exactly as Sun’s Java.For Mre Visit : Fedora 8 Release Notes.

[Puneet@LocalHost ~] $sudo yum install java-1.7.0-icedtea java-1.7.0-icedtea-plugin

[Puneet@LocalHost ~ ] $ sudo /usr/bin/mozilla-plugin-config -i -f

Sun Java

First you must install some libraries needed by Sun’ Java. Open a Console and Type:

When the libraries are installed create the links to this Libraries by typing:
