this one works for me. I installed gcjwebplugin. It seems a little
kludgey. I had to click on the 180 selector and then back to the 50
selector to get it to work, but it's now down to 46 minutes and

this one does not load for me. It eventually times out and has a link
to investigate why it doesn't work. Following that link bought me to a
page that suggests they support linux, which is great, and ultimately
led to a demo on the sun servers. That works more of less ok.

So its a mixed success, I guess.

Default java plugin for Debian testing on an AMD64?

Can anyone tell me where to get a java plugin for Debian testing on an
AMD64? I thought www.blackdown.org was the place to get it but that site
does not seem to exist.

Any suggestion?

Thanks, Bob

I am using "java-gcj-compat-plugin" from main in Lenny, it's seen as
java-plugin 1.5.0 by sun's online test and works ok for my occasional needs.
