Here's one that's got me stumped!
I just installed RH 6.2 Linux on a Dell Latitude laptop. After fiddling
for a long time getting the display to come up at 800x600, everything seems
to be working great...
...except for one really strange thing....
When I run Netscape (4.7 or 4.72), the address book is completely
I can add names, but they don't show up when I try to send mail. If I
try to click on names in the address book, about half will create the
modify dialogue, but half don't respond at all. Then, when I hit the OK
button, it adds another duplicate entry to the list, but it DOESN'T DISMISS
THE DIALOGUE. For every OK I hit, I get another duplicate name in the
list, but the window doesn''t go away until I hit CANCEL.
I've tried multiple copies of Netscape (all of which run fine on my RH
6.1 desktop). I've blown away the .netscape directory *and* the
/usr/local/netscape directory and started over from scratch. I've tried
multiple kernels (2.2.10 and 2.3.99-pre5). They ALL give the same
behavior. I'm wondering if there is something strange with the X server
that runs with the Neomagic video subsystem.
