Description Brian Gunney 1999-07-23 18:46:45 EDT
My netscape consistently makes "Bus error" crashes with
given html files, such as this one:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0//EN"
     "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40">
<html>
<head>
   <style type="text/css">
     body { margin: 5%; background-color: #cccc99 }
     p.even { color : green; border: none; }
     p.odd { color : red; border: none; }
   </style>
</head>
<body>
<p class=even>
More BIG NEWS: Once.
<p class=odd>
For Independence Day weekend 1999.
We visited the old farms and Lynn's childhood playgrounds
during the
Tuttles' visits to their Midwestern roots.
<p class=even>
BIG NEWS: We.
</body>
</html>

I'm running RH6.0.  The crash occurs with versions 4.6
(RH6.0 update) and 4.61 (from rawhide) of netscape.  My
system: i586 166Mhz MMX.  Running gnome 1.0.4.

Works for me here. What does /etc/X11/fs/config say in the
catalogue section?
Comment 2 Brian Gunney 1999-07-26 18:44:59 EDT
In /etc/X11/fs/config, it says
...
#
catalogue = /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled,
	/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi:unscaled,
	/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi:unscaled,
	/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc,
	/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1,
	/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo,
	/usr/share/fonts/default/Type1,
	/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi
...
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 1999-07-26 18:48:59 EDT
do:

chkfontpath --add /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi
/etc/rc.d/init.d/xfs restart

Does that solve the problem?
Comment 4 Brian Gunney 1999-07-26 20:12:59 EDT
That solves it!
