Description Polkan García 2003-12-10 19:34:10 UTC
Description of problem: I have installed RH 9. We used complex forms written in java that access to a oracle database, by means of Netscape 4.7x 4.8x and plugin of java for Netscape in its version 1.4.2. I have updated glibc to the recommended ones by redhat and when I access to the forms everything goes well a little while, soon simply the Netscape is congealed. In my network also I have redhat 7,3, I installed the same version of Netscape, plugin of java, and the problem does not appear, therefore I believe that he is something of redhat 9, but not that can be. In my network I have near 70 workstations with redhat linux 9 and in all the stations it happens the same, the Netscape after initializing some applet simply is blocked. I have tested in other versions of redhat (7,3, 7,2) with the same versions of netscape and jre plugin and all affluent march, non-blocking. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Redhat 9.0/Netscape 4.7x/4.8x How reproducible: Enter a set of applet that interchange information with a database server with Netscape and plugin of java on redhat 9 Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install netscape 2. Install jre plugin 3. Go to web forms. Actual results: The netscape is frezee Expected results: All forms work good in redhat 9 Additional info: No

I tested new: In my redhat 9, after being in X (init 5), I ran new graphical surroundings from one tty with the command "startx --:2". In the first graphical console (alt + f7) I am not executing the Netscape, simply, I am logged. In the new window of the X (alt + f8) I execute the Netscape and I access to the Web forms, NON-BLOCKING, will be perhaps a problem of X server? I again proved to enter the forms Web from the first graphical terminal (alt + f7) and it was blocked, while in the other console there was no problem. It will be some problem of X server?

This most definitely is no problem in glibc. Netscape 4.x is notoriously buggy. Old JVMs, especially when using LinuxThreads, are a nightmare. And even if we were to accept that this is a problem with glibc, how should we debug this? We cannot debug netscape or JVMs, we don't even have your complex forms. Your best bet, if you haven't done so already, is to use a reasonably well tested and modern environment. For stable commercial environments RHEL3 is certainly the best choice. If you are willing to live without the support and compatibility guarantees, use FC2 or the upcoming FC3. I'm closing the bug.
