Description gdelx001 1999-06-22 00:03:31 UTC
make a link in netscape composer in the errata/fixes
netscape-communicator-4.6-1 package version, and then
cancel.  Bus error results every time, crashing netscape.

Confirmed in test lab.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-06-22 15:39:59 UTC
Yuck. One way to work around it (although it's not a fix, because
it will break plugins, viewers, and the like) is to run it as:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/i386-glibc20-linux/lib \
/usr/i386-glibc20-linux/lib/ld-linux.so.2  \
/usr/lib/netscape/netscape-communicator

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 1999-07-09 22:35:59 UTC
reported to netscape. Hopefully it will be fixed in
a later version.
