I am having some issues with the latest nightly and getting softsqueeze to
work. The server installation is the 3-13 nightly on FC2 Linux and I have
installed the version of softsqueeze bundled with it. The client is a
Windows XP SP2 PC running the latest Java 2 JRE.

Whenever I launch Softsqueeze it asks me to install the Java MP3 plugin,
however when I attempt to load this the install won't progress past the
point where it wants to know the second directory for JRE installation.

Softsqueeze itself seems to work but the audio output is almost inaudible,
even if I turn up speakers, max the slider for output, etc. Additionally
everytime I start up softsqueeze the server sees this as a completely new
instance of the player (I now have 8 of them showing up in my players list
on the server).

What steps can I take to get softsqueeze working?

This has been reported a few times, I need to check the java bug parade
to see if it has been reported. For a work around see

I have just fixed both these bugs tonight. Please try tomorrow's nightly
build.
