That was easy, thanks. It even almost works. ;^) Pages and pages
of errors with missing locale C and Xkeysym when I start netscape. I
fixed that a few months back on my i86 machines and will have to compare
my X install. It does segfault bus error when I try to go to a link.
AFAIK that could be my raw X install, netscape or even fvwm2.
Can I ask what libstdc++ version and what netscape version you are using?
349548 Aug 6 1998 libstdc++.so.2.8.0
netscape 4.08 mklinux
