XFree, libc-6 and Netscape
I installed libc-6 and the latest XFree from unstable. This XFree
works only with libc-6 apparently.
Now when I want to run Netscape, which needs libc-5, it cannot find
the X11 libs.
If I set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to /usr/X11R6/lib, Netscape will find the X11
libs, but it will load both libc-5 and libc-6, resulting in a core
Since the new X11 libs (the ones for use with libc-6) use the same
major version number, it is impossible to have both the old (for use
with libc-5) and the new X11 libs simultaneously.
Q: Should the new X11 lib version not have a new major version number?
How can I use unstable (libc-6 and the new X11 libs) and use
