    There is already a open plugin based on the OpenJDK. It's called IcedTea. Look at http://iced-tea.org/wiki/Main_Page for information. Im using it on Gentoo x86_64 and it's worked very well so far, without any proprietary software needed.

    @Kano: Are you reffering to IcedTea or one of the older free Java-replacements? Afaik IcedTea should be fully compatible. Maybe you'd tell us what sites you've got problems with?

      Try the games in

      Also with Java 1.5 or newer (it works with 1.4.2!) you can try this:

      You can open private dialogs, but you are unable to close em. Very stupid bug...

        The games wont start for me. It complains about java missing. Weird.

        I get that as well. That's probably due to the applet doing weird stuff it isn't supposed to do.

          Maybe one day it will make sense...
          It's been bundled already and unfortunately mostly useless. It was the very first thing I replaced after the fresh hardy install.

            both works with 1.4.2, the spin chat games work with 1.5 and 1.6 too. Btw. the radio gong chat works with win, so it is a Linux only problem...
