Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 10597
Instability yet again.
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:13:19 EDT
Why won't you follow the example Mandrake set and use the compat-libs to
run netscape under the libraries that it was intended for. I used to have
an almost rock stable netscape until anacrapywhatsit "upgraded" my netscape
to the instable version that you shipped with 6.2. Why don't you just
follow their excellent example? furthermore, I cannot reinstall my older
netscape rpms as I believe you have shipped a buggy X library - not to
mention the fact that you shipped the wrong r128 X server...
Someday, oh someday you'll learn.
I'm sorry you feel that way. If you'd noticed, we ran the
supported glibc20 version against the compatiblity libs for
a while, only to find out that you just traded one set of
instabilities for others (memory leaks, hangs, etc.)
In that case, you didn't bother to look at what Mandrake have done with it
recently. The Mandrake compat lib version are MUCH more stable than yours and
don't really have many of these problems that you describe, and yes, I do know
that you tried it for a time, but IMNSHO you got it wrong.
