As Dave said, those three packages are meta-packages. They exist to depend on a bunch of other packages. The reason they were not upgraded is that the new versions of those three packages conflict with the 4.77 versions. If you do "apt-get install communicator navigator netscape" the 4.76 versions will be removed. And chances are this is what you want anyway. -- Mike Werner KA8YSD | He that is slow to believe anything and | everything is of great understanding, '91 GS500E | for belief in one false principle is the Morgantown WV | beginning of all unwisdom.
