Netscape 4.72 for Tru64 Unix works quite good on my SX 164 under
Debian 2.2r3, and even java works (I do homebanking with a java
applet, for example).
To install it, I just converted the rpm package that cames with RedHat
6.2 for Alpha to a deb package using alien :
alien -d -k -c navigator.rpm
I first did the same with the Tru64 compatibility libraries (also on the
RH 6.2 CD)
You may find the ISO images of RedHat 7.1 for Alpha on
www.linuxiso.org, I think it could works as well as the version 6.2 I
I give up, this is a quick a dirty way, but it helps me a lot. I hope it
will help you too.
Mozilla is much better, of course, but also much slower. So I think it
is usefull to have both.
