Trying to install the latest netscape 6.01 upgrade.
The installer crashes and dumps core. Tried to install is as root... bad
idea! The installer killed the fonts needed by X-font server. When you
reboot the computer X86 server will not start. You have to reinstall the
system to make it work again!
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Login as root
2.Try to install netscape 6.01
3.Start any application after installer crashes, e.g. emacs , you will
note a font is missing already.
4. reboot the machine... it will be dead for graphical environment.
We don't ship netscape 6.0.1.
