When i installed java-1.5.0-sun-plugin-1.5.0.04-1jpp.i586.rpm the link

manually to /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.4/plugins/. Why this link is not
created at the right place ?

The trigger script in the java-1.5.0-sun-plugin package that is intended to set up this link tries to figure out where to put the link by searching for the definition of MOZ_DIST_BIN in /usr/bin/firefox. However, in the FC4 firefox, MOZ_DIST_BIN is specified as:


MOZ_DIST_BIN="$MOZ_LIB_DIR/firefox-1.0.4"
rather than
MOZ_DIST_BIN="/usr/lib/firefox-1.0.4"

and the script doesn't know how to handle that. This is probably worth bringing up with the people at jpackage.


So how to change that ? have we to modify the firefox package ? May be it will be better to put the plugins in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins which seems to be used by firefox (with no version dependance) and mozilla ?

That seems reasonable to me but there may be a good reason why it's not done by default.


What needs fixing is the spec file for the jpackage java package so that if MOZ_DIST_BIN comes back as "$MOZ_LIB_DIR/firefox-1.0.4" then it goes back and looks to see what MOZ_LIB_DIR is (using the same method as for finding MOZ_DIST_BIN) and substitues that. Not terribly difficult.
