Java Unicode UTF-8
To start, i'm new to Linux ,specifically Fedora 7, which I am using. I have Mozilla Firefox which is where it seems the problem may lie. I downloaded Java i586 rpm.bin from the suggested Java download site itself. However, I can't install it to save my life. I have since been bouncing all over the web, mainly in Fedora forums and they don't know either. First, when I run the terminal command in Root, it says it can't find the package, or if I drag and drop the package to command line, it brings up the install window saying it needs Unicode 8, I have not been able to get unicode 8.
Basically, I followed every instruction under the sun and i'm being told it's a Java problem, however, i'm not 100% sure it is. I have Fedora 7 which states i386, is Java i586 for this? Well, at least the main Java download says it is. Or is this a Mozilla\Java issue? Either way, i'm ready to uninstall Fedora as I can't browse anything I typically do without the Java plugin, so any information would be great.
That said, if i'm in the wrong section here, please forgive. 3 days of trying to install Java is driving me nuts.
Thanks for any suggestions.
