From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0; T312461)

Description of problem:
this seems to have cropped up when upgrading glibc.  i know that your stock 
response is "rebuild the binary...".  i assume that i do not have to rebuild 
netscape?  netscape still runs, but it's not very comforting because other 
things could be broken as well?


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run netscape

Actual Results:  got "Incorrectly built binary which accesses errno, h_errno or 
_res directly. Needs to be fixed."

Expected Results:  nothing.

It's a bug in how netscape was built. We can't fix it, only Netscape can.
Comment 2 rick rauenzahn 2003-10-28 17:18:41 EST
well then don't put out faulty rpms.  what arrogance you people have.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2003-10-28 17:23:29 EST
netscape has not been shipped since Red Hat Linux 7.3. Note that we don't and
can't build netscape; we can only ship the binaries as Netscape built them.
