Netscape 4.7 install in Debian 2.1 Alpha fixed!
The following message is a courtesy copy of an article
that has been posted to comp.os.linux.alpha,comp.windows.x.kde as well.
Thanks to all who sent in help. The fix to the problem was
to delete the character string ",yp" from the file "/etc/svc.conf"
that was installed by the Compaq package. The program had the
appearance of hanging X11, but it was just searching the net for
something it would never find. The probem was totally unrelated to
kde. The error messages I was getting from a kde package was just a
message printed in abruptly exiting kde with cntrl-alt-backspace.
Netscape is really nice on an Alpha! Thanks be to Compaq and
