Was the plugin you downloaded the only one available for Alphas?
Remember, the version of netscape we have is really the Tru64
binary with all of the glue code and libraries we need to run
on alphalinux. Perhaps you need to get the Tru64 version of
the plugin since you are presumably using the Tru64 version
of dlopen(), which probably expects COFF format.
I'm talking out of my ass on this one, but you can try it.
