installation of Java on Fedora 9 x86_64

After a long time looking for a solution in order to install JAva on a 64bits installation of Fedora 9, i've found one, and give it to you here (thx Andreia).
all the tutoz i've found until now didn't work. It's that the diference was made by the installation of the library libXtst.i386 and the creation of a nez directory for firefox plugins. Curtam !

#add i386 repository
#create and edit the configuration file of the repo

gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-i386.repo


#copy and paste those infomations in that file and save it

[fedora-i386]
name=Fedora $releasever - i386
failovermethod=priority
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/$releasever/Everything/i386/os/
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-$releasever&arch=i386
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
includepkgs=firefox
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora
#
[updates-i386]
name=Fedora $releasever - i386 - Updates
failovermethod=priority
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/updates/$releasever/i386/
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=updates-released-f$releasever&arch=i386
enabled=1

Thanks tdfranc,
This took me forever to find. I kept trying to create a symlink for libjavaplugin_jni.so

For everyone running sun's version of java on x86_64, following the instructions on this site worked for me!

Sun's java plugin installation:

Code:
# echo $JAVA_HOME
/usr/local/jdk
# cd /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins
# ln -s /usr/local/jdk/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so .
Nothing more!
