From Bugzilla Helper:

BuildID:    2002022700

I go to http://sodaplay.com/ it asks me to get the plugin
I click Linux verison but it gives the error below every time
I download the file manually open it with mozilla and it does not work
can not find any documentation on mozill.org or netscape.com about installing
manually
it turned out to be a zip file so i unzipped but i could not run the install.js
file in mozilla.
i copie the .so files to the plugins dir still no joy

is there any reason there is no simple way to install the java runtime
enviroment from netscape?
ftp://ftp.netscape.com/pub/netscape6/english/6.2/unix/linux22/plugins/

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.go to sodaplay.com
2.try and install
3.the auto instrall will fail

Actual Results:  Should install and work!

This is the incorect and windows biased error I get

Error -202 is an access denied error, you no doubt don't have write permission
to the directory the installer is trying to install to. You can double-check
this in the install.log that's generated either in the mozilla directory or in
your home profile directory.

It'd be nice if the site was more helpful with error messages, but that's a
Netscape, not Mozilla, problem.

I found a work around to get it installed.
I change to root, with su
then create a root mozilla profile
open ghe xpi file it instals OK

then run mozilla as normal, but now sodaplay.com makes mozilla close, i dont
think it crashes it, just closes as there is no "segmentation fault" error

could this work around be mentioned on mozilla.org website?

could you test sodaplay.com and see if it works for you please?
This "work around" is in the "I can't get Java working" section of the release 
notes, which you may want to read...

Hello,

I can not find a section on the releases seciton of mozilla.org with this topic
or a any part of it
"I can't get Java working" section

Could you tell me the url please?

I have checked the site and this url etc


http://mozilla.org/releases/mozilla0.9.9/#java

# ll *oji*
lrwxr-xr-x    1 root     root           69 Mar 14 11:16 libjavaplugin_oji.so ->
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/java2/plugin/i386/ns600/libjavaplugin_oji.so*

I was able to get http://www.math.wisc.edu/~stefanss/cylindrical.html to work now!

after i installed the xpi as root, (i could not find this mentioned on the site,
could you tell me the url as well please?)

but http://www.sodaplay.com still does not work, It now crashes as soon as
loading. This is the debug info I captured. Could you tell me if its my setup or
if it crashes your mozilla s well please?
