XNLSPATH variable in Netscape?

I am trying to re-install Netscape Communicator, and can do so OK until I execute the actual binary, at that time it gives me an error (Bus Error) saying that perhaps the XNLSPATH variable is not set correctly. It indicates that the config files are in a certain path, which does exist on my system.

Any input on how this variable is configured? I am running Linux Mandrake, which follows the RedHat distribution (5.2)

I have an update: I am using the same distribution in my desktop PC, and it has the exact same directory structure that the message says, with the same files. Yet there, the upgrade worked like a charm. Help! I am now using the internet browser in StarOffice 5.1, but it is a bit slow and not too efficient for my taste.

Try setting it with something like:
export XNLSPATH
XNLSPATH=/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/

or

XNLSPATH=/usr/lib/locale

Also, try unsetting the LANG environment variable.

One more clarification:

Is this in the .bashrc file? or somewhere inside the .netscape directory on my home dir?

Thanks!

put it in your ~/.bashrc

Also, type env|grep LANG
If LANG is set to seomthing,
put unset LANG in the end of ~/.bashrc

Hi Again!

Well, at least I got it to actually display when I do a set command  :)  

When I do a set, it displays:

XNLSPATH=/home/root/.netscape

The LANG variable does not appear in my SET display, but Netscape still displays the Bus Error!!

HELP! I still can't browse, and these days, it's not a luxury anymore  :)

Hi! I have re-formatted my linux setup, and everything is working fine again. I can't see the XNLSPATH setting, under my set display, but I assume it has been fixed by the reinstallation of the OS. It was the best thing to do, since some other apps were experiencing symptoms of corrupted environment settings.

Thanks for your help, I am awarding the points, sorry I took so long!  :)
