Description jbunch 1999-07-12 15:02:54 UTC
Point Netscape Communicator to the following URL:
http://www.mysql.com/Manual/manual.html#Tutorial

Then page down to the bottom of this page.  Before the
bottom of the web page is reached, the text will become
practically unreadable.  This also affects the fonts on the
GNOME desktop at the same time.

I have tried upgrading to the latest RPM version of Netscape
Communicator (4.60), and I have also upgraded all XFree86
packages to 3.3.3.1-52:
XFree86-cyrillic-fonts-3.3.3.1-52
XFree86-75dpi-fonts-3.3.3.1-52
XFree86-libs-3.3.3.1-52
XFree86-xfs-3.3.3.1-52
XFree86-doc-3.3.3.1-52
XFree86-SVGA-3.3.3.1-52
XFree86-100dpi-fonts-3.3.3.1-52
XFree86-3.3.3.1-52
XFree86-devel-3.3.3.1-52
netscape-common-4.60-4mdk
netscape-communicator-4.60-4mdk

I am using the SVGA server to drive an S3-based video
controller.

I have also changed /usr/X11R6/bin/X to point to XF86_SVGA
instead of Xwrapper, but that had no effect.

Works fine here with XFree86-SVGA (Matrox G200). Exactly
what sort of S3-based card do you have?

Comment 2 Jay Turner 1999-07-12 16:00:59 UTC
Also, try upgrading to the latest version of Netscape that is
available for Linux (I think that it is 4.61) and see if this solves
any problems.  Reopen this bug if that does not fix the problem.
