I have a DEC workstation which runs DEC OSF/1 V2.0 Worksystem Software (Rev. 240). Sometimes I have problems
running netscape. The system crashes when I visit some web
site. All the terminals are killed, and a big core generats.
I use file to look at the core, it is generated by dxterm.
why this thing happened? any help is appreciated.

I've the same problem with Netscape on my AIX machine. I suspect
memory leak in Netscape. Try to upgrade to the latest version and
add more memory to your system might help. Most of the time when
it crashed, memory is running low and it starts using paging space. I don't have any solution to the problem for 8 months now.

Good luck,

I bet 25 cent that its the Java supprot that doesnt work. Read the README:s included in the Netscape dist for Java support. Probably you just have to set a few enviroment variables or create some directory for netscape:s java files.
