Netscape for Linux

Post by Jinping Gu » Thu, 16 May 1996 04:00:00

I have linux 1.2.8 from slackware and XFree 3.1.2d (for TGUI9440AGi
trident video card). ppp connection is up, ping is working for both
remote ip address(dynamic) and DNS SERVER(from installation instruction
for Win 95), but netscape give me error "Broken Pipe" when I try to load
the URL in proxy config. no DNS entry for when I click
on Home button of netscape, ppp0's RX packets & TX packets(in ifconfig
return) increase when I got error, so It is trying to contact the
server. any help?  Also if I use XFree 3.1.1 from slackware, I got no
colormap when I try to start netscape, why? Last, what email utility I
can use to test the ppp connection?

Thanks in advance

1. Netscape should bundle Netscape with Linux!

In the wake of the war between Netscape and Microsoft, what Netscape
should include in their strategy is to bundle Linux -- the most popular
Internet operating systems -- with its Navigator.

This solve the problem of Netscape being reliant on Win NT 4.0. The
problem is highlighted by Netscape accusing Microsoft limiting the
number of simultaneous connections on Win NT 4.0 to 10.

If Netscape bundle Linux with its Navigator, then this restriction can
be overcome.

Netscape could undermine Microsoft by opting Linux as the operating
