My children want to play runscape inside the browser. Never mind what runscape is, it's a very popular online game. However it needs java and offers e.g. java for linux as RPM and other formats.

How should I take care of this. Install what software through porthole or else download the RPM package ? :unsure:

yes thanks, it works with icecat.
I am a bit confused because icecat seems to be based on mozilla firefox ? I also saw in porthole two entries for installing firefox (3.5.6) and tried to install, but firefox doesn't appear in the application menu. However I noticed that in /usr/bin there is now firefox, but when I execute this manually, shiretoko, yet another browser is launched ??

This is because you have compiled firefox yourself. When you install "firefox-bin"
then the official Mozilla Firefox will be there for you.
