HELP: Netscape (Bus error...)

Post by Bruno Boettch » Fri, 25 Oct 1996 04:00:00



hello,

i know i have /lib/libc.so.5.3.12 and /usr/X11R6/lib/libXpm.so.4.3, but
isn't there a way to make netscape work with them?
can an older library coexist with a newer one? How is this achieved?

I heard of a netscape/linux help page somewhere, could it be possible to
get the link?

Is there any alternative to netscape(with the same functionality...)?

when can the next beta release be expected for linux, and will it address
the memory leak bug?

1. Netscape 3.00 and Netscape 3.01 crashes with Bus Error.

Hi.

I've a problem using Netscape 3.0 and higher with S.u.S.E Linux 4.3.

For some reason, Netscape crashes with "Bus Error". I have this
problem occasionally at home with some sites, but when I just tried to
install Netscape at work in a firewall environment, Netscape crashed
even before I could configure my proxy server. (Of course, behind a
firewall I can not connect directly to the Netscape Home site, which
is configured als default home).

I have 32 MB Ram, both at home and at work, and about 50 MB Swap
Partition, thus I hardly expect a memory problem.

I have appended the last few lines of a strace protocol, but I cannot
see the reason for my problem here...

Any help will be appreciated,

please reply via e-mail to, both to my home address:


Many thanks!

Detlef
