Upgrade the Netscape from 4.08 -> 4.61?

Hello,

I am using the Red Hat5.0 with CLEv0.8 and it has pre-install the netscape4.08 and now I want to update the Netscape to 4.61. Thus, I install the netscape to the netscape4.08's directory where is /usr/local/netscape.  However, when I run the netscape, it shows:

 netscape: program is version 4.61, but resources are version 4.08.

        This means that there is an inappropriate `Netscape' file installed
        in the app-defaults directory.  Check these environment variables
        and the directories to which they point:

        $XAPPLRESDIR
        $XFILESEARCHPATH
        $XUSERFILESEARCHPATH

        Also check for this file in your home directory, or in the
        directory called `app-defaults' somewhere under /usr/lib/.

Thus, how to solve this?

Thank you very much for your helping hands!!!

Best regards
Doris

You need to take the file /usr/local/netscape/Netscape.ad, and copy it to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults/Netscape (note the file name change).

Either that, or add a line to your shell startup file (.profile, .cshrc, .bashrc) which adds "/usr/local/netscape/Netscape.ad" to the setting for $XUSERFILESEARCHPATH. Here's a .bashrc example:

export XUSERFILESEARCHPATH=$XUSERFILESEARCHPATH:/usr/local/netscape/Netscape.ad

I am sorry the above two methods are still not work in my case, I have tried both. It still displays this error message:

netscape: program is version 4.61, but resources are version 4.08.

                        This means that there is an inappropriate `Netscape' file installed
                        in the app-defaults directory.  Check these environment variables
                        and the directories to which they point:

                        $XAPPLRESDIR
                        $XFILESEARCHPATH
                        $XUSERFILESEARCHPATH

                        Also check for this file in your home directory, or in the
                        directory called `app-defaults' somewhere under /usr/lib/.

Could You and anyone give me some suggestions?

Thank you very much for your help !!!

You are right but since i install red hat with cle0.7 thus, i have to copy the file into the directory
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/zh_TW.BIG5/app-defaults/Netscape instead of /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults/Netscape!!!

Thank you very much for your help !!!

Have a Nice Day!

Best regards
