First off, even after installing the rpm, you still have to create a
link to your plugins dir.  Locate your libjavaplugin.so file and create
a link as below..

link -s /path/to/libjavaplugin.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/.

Or, you could just install the java-1.7.0-icedtea-plugin package and get
the free version of it that works out of the box (or as installed).
