The only notes I can provide are that I did not try to install with one
of the older Debian package scripts (just unzipped & untarred and ran
the script that came with) and that I was logged in as root when I did
Sounds like it might be a library problem. You might try reinstalling
some of the libraries just in case. Also you might want to check for
updates on the Debian ftp site (2.0 *is* still beta, y'know). To see
what libraries Netscape uses, type "ldd /usr/bin/netscape". To see
what package the library comes from, type "dpkg --search

However i'm often using 3.01 again cause its more stable.
NS 4.05, often steps out with a bus-error, once almost* X.
It also doesn't like to be off-line, it some times locks it self in
a DNS lookup on which it eats all al cpu-cycles it can (which is bad
while ray tracing :-)
try installing a newer libXpm (if not already done).

1. Netscape Communicator 4.05 on Linux
I am currently running Communicator 4.05 on Red Hat Linux 5.0.
Occasionally I still get bus errors, so I had the idea of checking to
see if I had all of the libraries that Communicator needed. Here are
the results of my ldd:
libXt.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXt.so.6 (0x40003000)
libSM.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libSM.so.6 (0x40046000)
libICE.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libICE.so.6 (0x4004e000)
libXmu.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXmu.so.6 (0x40062000)
libXpm.so.4 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXpm.so.4 (0x40072000)
libXext.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXext.so.6 (0x40081000)
libX11.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.so.6 (0x4008c000)
libdl.so.1 => /lib/libdl.so.1 (0x40123000)
libc.so.5 => not found
libg++.so.27 => not found
libstdc++.so.27 => not found
libm.so.5 => not found
libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x40126000)
/lib/ld-linux.so.1 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x00000000)
I was wondering if the libraries I do not have could cause problems,
where I could get the ones I am missing, and what versions of the
libraries would be best for me to use.
