I never had this problem installing Netscape 6. I installed it as a
normal user in a directory I could write to and then moved it to
/emul/linux/usr/local/netscape6 later. Besides the standard Netscape
bloat and crash, I didn't have any problems.
I haven't been able to install any plugins, but I haven't tried too
I had a lot of trouble installing StarOffice 5.2, however. I downloaded
the so-5_2-ga-bin-linux-en.bin file from sun and executed it. The first
problem I have is the setup script has the wrong path to test, which I was
able to fix. I also got some errors with shared libraries, which can
be fixed by setting the LD_LIBRARY_PATH envar to /emul/linux/lib/
However, once I fix these things, the thing just finishes with no errors,
and without leaving any setup files or any traces of any successful
So how did you do it?
