I'm trying to access html pages including JAVA applet.
But, there is some problems. Could you give me a bit of idea ?

my linux kernel version is 2.0.20 and XFree3.2

(1) mkdir /usr/local/netscape
(2) cd /usr/local/netscape
(3) tar zxvf netscape-v301-export.x86-unknown-linux-elf.tar.gz
(4) mkdir /usr/local/netscape/java
(5) mkdir /usr/local/netscape/java/classes
(6) cp java_301 /usr/local/netscape/java/classes/java_301
(7) export CLASSPATH="/usr/local/netscape/java/classes/java_301:."
(8) export LD_PRELOAD=/lib/gnumalloc.so
(9) ./netscape
(10) open http://java.sun.com:80/products/jdk/1.1/docs/guide/misc/applet.html
     in netscape

there is no error message but it doesn't display any applets.

I will appreciate you if you show me some good advice.
Thanks.

Hi
Have you copied the 'gnumalloc.so' file into the '/lib/' directory?
If not, get the file and do so. One more thing! Do not execute the
netscape binary
downloaded directly from the internet but run a script file containing
the following lines:

#!/bin/sh
export CLASSPATH="/usr/local/netscape/java/classes/java_301:."
export LD_PRELOAD="/lib/gnumalloc.so"

If you haven't checked out 'http://www.blackdown.org", do so.
I hope this may help you. Bye.

Applet doesn't display anything on Netscape Gold 3.01.

Thanks for comment. But, It still doesn't work.

I've already copied the 'gnumalloc.so' into the '/lib/' directory.
But, in case, I checked 'http://www.blackdown.org" and
copied it again.
I made shell script '/usr/bin/X11/netscape', which is

   #!/bin/sh
   export CLASSPATH="/usr/local/netscape/java/classes/java_301:."
   export LD_PRELOAD="/lib/gnumalloc.so"

and excute '/usr/bin/X11/netscape'.
But, result is the same as before that it doesn't display any
error message but doesn't display any applets such as

http://java.sun.com:80/products/jdk/1.1/docs/guide/misc/applet.html

Of course, it displays normal text and gif/jpeg pictures
but doesn't display only applets.

I wonder if I have removed some library and sources.
I removed '/usr/src/linux/' directory which include sources of the linux kernel.
Does this cause some problem ?

Applet doesn't display anything on Netscape Gold 3.01.

I also have the same problem. Re-installing Netscape Navigator 3.01 or
3.01 Gold does not help. Netscape Communicator 4.01b6 displays the Java
applets correctly, however.
When I use Netscape Navigator 3.01, I use it with an old libc (5.2.18)
which used to give me correct Java applet behaviour without crashing. I
also tried gnumalloc.so which didn't help at all. The strange thing is
that the Navigator just stops displaying Java applets when I haven't
changed any system configuration (yesterday it worked, today it
doesn't).

If any one can offer an explanation to this, I'd appreciate it very
much. Thanks.

Yes. I've succeeded in displaying applets using Netscape Communicator
4.01b6.  Thanks a lot.

1. HELP: Netscape 3.01 GOLD crashes when loading applets

Java support in Navigator 3.01 is *extremely* buggy.  Personally, I
wonder why Netscape included it at all.  (Netscape seems to think that
software failure is a virtue. ;-) If you can do without running Java
applets, simply go to the main menu, and select Options->Network
Preferences->Languages and disable Java.  But you can keep Javascript;
that seems to work ok.

Java is much better supported in the Communicator (currently at version
beta 5 for Linux), but it runs much slower than on any other system (Mac
or Windows).  Of course, even though Java works, Communicator is still
in a very buggy beta release. ;-)
