1) mkdir ~/j4o
2) cd ~/j4o
3) ln -s /usr/local/jdk1.4.1/jre/lib/i386/client/
4) ln -s /usr/local/jdk1.4.1/jre/lib/i386/client/
5) ln -s
6) ln -s
7) Add to the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH the value:
Then as root and at your own risk

9) cd /usr/src/lib/libc_r
10) make LDFLAGS='-lc -L/usr/lib'
11) cp /usr/obj/usr/src/world_i386/usr/lib/ ~/j4o
12) strip ~/j4o/
13) Set Java path in Opera -> Tools -> Preferences -> Multimedia to
14) validate Java path
15) Try to load an applet
Running the dslreports speed test applet in WindowsXP and on DragonFly 
yield about the same results so I guess applets work fairly well in 
Opera 7.50. Although there were some responsiveness problems after 
running applets that required Opera to be restarted, applets appear to 
be reasonbly functional.
