Until yesterday I used Netscape 4.05 for linux, because I found it the
more stable version I tried.
Now I just upgraded my system to OpenBSD 2.6 (i386). Since then my
Nescape started freezing every time I try to get new messages from
server (the usual tiny window opens and then everything stops!).
I tied to use the BSDI version contained into the packages, but it has
too many problems with Java.
So I tried Netscape 4.7 for linux, as suggested by Mike in his quoted
email. But contrary to him I had not to install any libstdc++.so.2.8
library. Anyway this version of Netscape has the same problem of my
previous version: freezes when I tri to get new messages from server.
So I thought that my linux libraries are bad, and I tried to reinstall
them from the 2.6 ports, but when I try to make it the following error
"/usr/share/mk/bsd.port.mk", line 2: Could not find
Fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue
So, what's wrong in my system?
Is it normal that I dont ahve any "/usr/ports/infrastructure" directory?
What I can do to make the Linux Netscape to work again?
Have I to return to 2.5?
