I'm currently installing netscape communicator 4.5 on a slackware 2.0
After downloading the communicator file from win NT, I reboot into linux
and ran this command:
gzip -dc commun~1 | tar -xvf- to unpack the file.
During the unpacking, I received various error messages i.e.
tar: ./communicator-v45.x86-unknown_linux2.0/jio40.jar: cannot chown to
uid 7824 gid20: operation not permitted.
this type of message came on for all files that the unpacking
attempted. After the system gave me a prompt, I found a communicator
directory was neatly created.
This time, I entered the directory and decided to run ns-install (to
The installation appears to copy all files into the /usr/local/netscape
directory, and completed w/o any errors.
After installation, I tried to start netscape from within
/usr/local/netscape and received this message
bash: ./netscape: no such file or directory.
I went back and checked the directory; There is a netscape file w/ size
and the attrib is -r-xr-xr-x
I've tried to redownload and installed netscape several times. Each
time, I have the same problem.
Any help is appreciated.
