Description Chris Eagan 2003-11-19 12:55:48 UTC
Even with the 32-bit libraries installed, Mozilla
cannot load the java plugin.
Comment 1 Brad Laue (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-11-19 21:56:02 UTC
Please add some specifics about your system - CPU architecture, 'emerge info' output, etc.
Comment 2 Chris Eagan 2003-11-20 15:50:00 UTC
The system is an AMD Athlon64.
32-bit emulation is enabled in the kernel
Everything compiled from source is 64-bit code.

emerge info output:

Comment 3 Brad Laue (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-11-20 22:07:01 UTC
You'll need either a 64bit java plugin or a 32bit mozilla; 32bit objects can't be loaded into 64bit applications - brad_mssw is involved in much of the amd64 work and has discussed such things with me, so I'm attaching him to the bug.
Comment 4 Brad House 2003-11-21 05:51:34 UTC
It's not possible to load a 32bit object into a 64bit object/executable.
Never will be.  Don't expect any pre-made 32bit plugins to work
in your self-compiled applications.

I'll add this stuff to my technotes this weekend to make it absolutely

Closing the bug as CANTFIX
