Hi,
I have a problem with the "help.start()" and the search engine on a AMD64 : The search engine use the java plugin but the java plugin is not available for the jre.1.5 ...

I have a linux box : fedora 4 on 64bit and R2.1.1 When I start the search engine, I had the message that the java plugin was missing.
So I try to install manual the java run time jre-1.5 for the AMD64, but the plugin was missing
(
http://forum.java.sun.com/thread.jspa?threadID=568127&tstart=75 ) So I instaled the J2RE blackdown 1.4.2
I obtain the plugin for the 64bit and make the link.

When I restart R and the search engine, the plugin 1.4.2 correctly reconnize by mozilla
( about:plugins in the URL windows), and I don't have any more the message for the missing
plugin, but, then I try a search, mozilla freeze and I have to kill it :

> help.start()

Making links in per-session dir ...
If '/usr/bin/firefox' is already running, it is *not* restarted, and

    you must switch to its window.
Otherwise, be patient ...

I am not a "system administrator" and It's my home computer (so no help ...) So I need your help ;-)

Thanks.
