I have been using Sun's JVM for quite some time now (over quite a few
releases). First up install the Sun's Java Env. Then, a little lesser
known fact is that you need to have compat-stdc++ also installed.
Finally, just link
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ and then restart firefox.
And oh yeah, I also pathmunge that java path (in /etc/profile).
Thats all that there is to it.
Still downloading Fedora 8. Once I have it installed shall toy around
with IcedTea too.
