I have Fedora 13 x86_64 installed and need to access the corporate VPN solution, run using Juniper Networks software. Since they don't support x86_64 I install Seamonkey i686 and Sun Java i386. This worked on F12. However, when I launch the VPN connection, the java box pops up, and as it should show the IP address of my connection, the box disappears.
I have tried with both jre-6u15-linux-i586-rpm and jre-6u20-linux-i586-rpm. I am also using seamonkey-2.0.4-1.fc13.i686. All patches are up to date.
In audit.log I see:
type=ANOM_ABEND msg=audit(1277246068.517:1183): auid=500 uid=500 gid=500 ses=30

In /var/log/messages I see:

While the window is open, a ps axl shows the following:

The java window appears briefly, but no tun0 interface is created.
Any help in fixing this would be appreciated.

I had the bright idea of running the Java Console to see if I saw anything else. This is what I saw:
/home/louis/.juniper_networks/network_connect/xlaunchNC.sh: line 56: xterm: command not found
So I installed xterm ...
The app ran and popped up an xterm box asking for the root password to install the applet.
Then is all worked. So now I am closing this bug. I hope I didn't waste anyone's time with this.
