Re: Trying to fix a mistake in upgrading Netscape...

Rather than renaming netscape-v304-export.x86-unknown-linux-elf.tar so
that you can use the .deb installer for the netscape 3 version, it's
fairly simple to hack the 3 netscape related install files in
/var/lib/dpkg/info. Simply search for all instances of 301 and change it
to 304, then do the same with the Packages.contrib file. (As always, keep
an original copy of the file you're about to edit in case something goes

I did exactly this and got a clean install of netscape-v304 with
no complaints from dpkg.
