Hi, and welcome to LQ!

Can you start if from a Gnome-terminal (assuming
that you're using the FC default desktop-environment)?


Cheers,
Tink

To start netscape 7.1, the usual command is:

[you@yourbox]$ /usr/local/netscape/netscape

I strongly suggest making a shortcut to that on your desktop, or adding an alias to your .bashrc .bash_profile. I created the alias netscape = /usr/local/netscape/netscape &, and that makes it much faster to start from a terminal.

Peace,
JimBass

The command line is your best friend. All the guis are nice and have their places, but the CLI is hands down one of the most powerful aspects of linux. Now that you know the command to issue, you can create your own shortcut to it. Just like a custom made windows shortcut, you just need to know where the file you want is located.

Peace,
JimBass
