netscape availability (where?)
hi, i have debian slink running on a sparcstation 2 (sun4m i think) and
all is as it should be, except i can't find netscape 4.5 native for it.
1. searched ftp.netscape.com extensively, it seems that last year they
had a sparc-linux version in their unsupported directory, but they don't
appear to have it there anymore.
2. tried installing the debian package netscape-base-45. This is just some
utilities for netscape, not the actual binary for netscape.
3. looked at base/web for other netscape stuff and only found the help
files and support files for java, _not_ the netscape executable.
4. found an rpm package netscape-common* and netscape-communicator*,
converted it to debian using alien, and installed it. However, it seems
the binaries are really for 64bit ultra's, not my little 32bit sparc.
(when i run it, i get "illegal instruction", maybe it is just corrupted,
i don't know). I found it in the ultra subdirectory, i can't find
a similar package in the sparc directory.
If someone knows where i can get the binaries of netscape, could you
let me know? thanks. I would be eternally greatfull.
