If you don't use a leading slash, it is a relative link. That means you
created /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so as a link to
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/usr/java/jre1.5.0._08/plugin/i386/ns7, which
doesn't exist, and is therefore blinking red.

Once again, libjavaplugin_oji.so is 100% irrelevant to the NZ client.

Where? I did not see that on the page to which both Rick and I linked.

That's why it said to put a link to the plugin there.

PS-I apologize for getting impatient with my replies, but I am only
answering your questions as you ask them. I am not the endless fountain of
patience that would be required to completely disregard your questions and
instead tell you everything you should do instead of what you are doing.
Sure, teaching someone to fish is superior to giving them a fish, but one
must first possess the talent to be able to teach such a thing. I am sorry
to be running rather low on that talent at the moment.
