Application Error [Solved]

Post#1 by Ed_P » 10 Mar 2014, 05:04

Attempting to play a game with FireFox I get the following error:

Code: Select all

Application Blocked.  Click for details

Your security settings have blocked an application from running
with an out-of-date or expired version of Java.

Details  Ignore  Reload 
None of the button options help.

I've looked in FireFox, looked through the Porteus options and settings, I can't find a way to change Java's security settings, How do I change the security setting?

The URL at the heart of this is: http://www.freearcade.com/Texttwist.jav/Texttwist.html

an out-of-date or expired version of Java
the best way is update your java, don't know how to do it with older version.

Thanks tome but not sure how to do that. I looked at the Java site and didn't see a version for Slackware.

I did however find the Java ControlPanel, mnt/live/memory/images/jre-7u45-x86_64-1.xzm/usr/lib64/java/jre/bin, ran it and changed the security settings such that I got a prompt when accessing the URL asking me if it was ok. :Yahoo!:

Don't use 'mnt/live/memory/images/' for xzm modules, use this /usr/lib64/java/jre/bin

Even in Always Fresh Mode you will have it - too older java, wait for 3.0 final - should be in this week.

I didn't put it there, the cheatcode did. And the files are actually in both locations. :unknown:

Actual finding Java RTE modules for Slackware is not that easy. Though I could be searching incorrectly.

Don't worry bro

Take this 2 packages TXZ and convert to XZM

download and make your module icedtea
http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbu ... 1alien.txz

download and make your module openjre
http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbu ... 1alien.txz

I tested works fine!

Enjoy :D

Convert?

This openjre 7u51 file is 25% bigger than the original jre 7u45 download you gave me. Any particular reason for the size increase?

This packages are slackware format TXZ, you need convert to xzm (txz2xzm) or right click convert tgz/txz to xzm (module).
I don know why is bigger, but this package is opensource version from java oracle.

Thanks Slaxmax. I didn't see Convert as an option or sub-option when I Right clicked on the file but the txz2xzm command worked. Will test it out later.

Porteus recognizes openjre as a valid module but FireFox doesn't.

Thanks brokenman. After fiddling with openjre I had forgotten to download it. :oops: However at this point going to Java sites now freezes FireFox. :wall:

The USM openjre-7u51_b41-x86_64-1sl.txz slacky version appears to work for most my java links but one errors out.
