In my couple attempts i've only been able java to hang with firefox in FBSD.... :-(

I'll probably make another attempt soon though.

jdk-1.4.2p6_3 Java Development Kit 1.4.2

That's pretty much it on one system, but on another it's not being as forgiving. :?

I'm going to post something here to test

I got it to work today, pretty much just like Kernel_Killer.

FBSD 5.2.1-release, tracking ports with cvs (or course...)

Firefox built from ports
firefox-0.8_5 /usr/ports/www/firefox.

Jdk14 built from ports
jdk-1.4.2p6_4 /usr/ports/java/jdk14

Linked in the java plugin into the firefox plugin area.

ln -s /usr/local/jdk1.4.2/jre/plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/X11R6/lib/firefox/lib/mozilla-1.6/plugins/

Started up firefox, and it worked like a charm. Haven't had it hang yet....
