This has nothing to do with netscape, it has to do with your videocard
setup.  You're going to get this if you are using less than 15-bit
color.

Not enough colors, you're probably running 8 bit/256 colors.

try startx -bpp 24>

To all having problems with netscape--the libraries have to be linked to
different version and other problems.  I would try NCSA Mosaic.  They
invented the web anyways.

Sorry about my previous message, I made a mistake... I did write something
however, I'll try to reproduce it. The bus-errors can (may) be solved by
starting netscape with an older library, check out:
 http://members.ping.at/theofilu/netscape.html
it worked for me... I have had no bus-errors after I applied this fix
(workaround). The colorproblem is solved by startig x with 16 bits colors,
alternatively you can try netscape -install, letting it use its own
colormap. I think someone mentioned some -visual options... not sure about
that.

Good luck,

Anne

1. Netscape 3.01 Gold and Linux

I've installed Netscape 3.01 Gold (gunzipped and untarred) on my Linux
system.  Then when I executed 'netscape' I got an error message saying
that Netscape is unable to load the shared library 'libXt.so.6'.  This
library is in my /usr/X11R6/lib/ directory.  Any help with this
would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance...
