# eselect java-nsplugin list
Available 32-bit Java browser plugins
 emul-linux-x86-java-1.6 current
Available 64-bit Java browser plugins
I have blackdown java installed but it does not show up in eselect. Why is that?

installed", despite this symlink:
When I use 64 bit firefox with the sun jdk it comes up and 'sort of'

I was previously using the blackdown plugin, however if I manually

shows no plugins installed.
My googling isn't turning up much helpful, I suspect I just don't know
enough to provide good keywords.
