Description fcastel 1999-05-24 15:52:50 UTC
I have: Netscape 4.08.1 PPP modem connection When I run netscape it opens fine and I can browse docs that are local. When I attempt to configure preferences (Edit->preferences) or access a WWW page it freezes and goes to idle CPU. Machine: Dell XPT500 (500 MHZ Pentium III) 384 Mb Memory 20 GB HD \ mount point partition 1 GB also tried it on 133 Mhz Pentium 64 Mb Memory 500 Mb HD \ mount point partition 150 Mb

Try updating to the latest Netscape packages and see if you still get the same problems. Reopen this bug if you are still having problems after upgrading to the latest version (4.6)

I downloaded the Linux 2.0 version of Netscape 4.6 128 encrypt. I performed a manual install (no rpm in tar file) and set my environment variables as described in the netscape readme. It hangs even before the 4.08-1 version did. No luck.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 1999-05-25 14:12:59 UTC
what kernel are you using?
Comment 4 fcastel 1999-05-26 01:06:59 UTC
I believe it is 2.0. It is the one on the CD with the SAMS book Linux Unleashed (with RH Linux 5.2).
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 1999-06-14 21:51:59 UTC
What happens if you remove (or move out of the way) your ~/.netscape directory?
Comment 6 fcastel 1999-06-14 23:01:59 UTC
I can't tell anymore, I purchased 6.0 and have not played around with it yet.
Comment 7 David Lawrence 1999-06-14 23:11:59 UTC
Reopen this bug again if the problem still occurs after updating to 6.0.
