Description George France 2002-03-28 14:58:58 EST
Description of Problem:

These switches are broken:
-messenger, -mail  (they are the same)
-discussion, -news (same too)

Normally, the netscape browser should appear on the screen after I issue
these commands despite the warnings.  However, for these switches, just
the warnings came up and nothing else happened.  For example,  switch
-messenger should open up the netscape mail program.  Yet, the mail
program did not open up.  I can't use netscape messenger on those alpha
machines anymore and have to switch to balsa or mozilla -mail.  I think
I have already told you about this particular -messenger switch before.

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


How Reproducible:


Expected Results:

same as RedHat 7.2 for Intel, which works.
