I doubt it's a 64bit problem, possibly Ultra Sparc Extensions.
I've fired up my SS20 and done some tests. Using Java 1.5.0_04 for
the plugin it fails:
Java process: caught exception from sun.plugin.navig.motif.Plugin.start
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError:
/opt/jdk1.5.0_04/jre/lib/sparc/libawt.so: ld.so.1: java_vm: fatal:
/opt/jdk1.5.0_04/jre/lib/sparc/libawt.so: bad ELF flags value: 768
because that file is:
$ file /opt/jdk1.5.0_04/jre/lib/sparc/libawt.so
/opt/jdk1.5.0_04/jre/lib/sparc/libawt.so: ELF 32-bit MSB dynamic
lib SPARC32PLUS Version 1, V8+ Required, UltraSPARC1 Extensions
Required, dynamically linked, stripped
A bug in the JDK? I guess so.
With Java 1.4.2_08 firefox runs my applets.
CSWfirefox has an UltraSPARC1 library (libfreebl_hybrid_3.so) but I've
not triggered its use and so far firefox hasn't failed.
At start up firefox kindly points out I don't have a the 64bit patch
for SUNWlibCx - funny that, it's right, I don't.
