I'm not sure -- I was about to post this. I'm trying to use the Java
plugin for Mozilla 1.0. I have a symlink to the jre plugin in the
right directory, but when I fire up Mozilla, I get this message:
LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library /usr/pkg/java/jre/plugin/i386/ns600/libjavaplugin_oji140.so [Shared object "libXt.so.6" not found]
I wonder if that has something to do with a NetBSD-native program
trying to use a Linux emulator plug-in. (Aside: Last month, I posted
a note asking why I got getpwuid_r undefined any time I tried to run
Java. I finally fixed it, by pkg_deleting all of the Linux emulator,
and then doing 'rm -f' on /emul/linux and /usr/pkg/emul/linux, and
reinstalling everything. I have no idea what was really wrong, but
something in my emulation setup was scrogged, almost certainly by an
attempt to upgrade to 7.3.)
