Hi all, I still haven't got Java working under Netscape 3.0 yet, and I
thought maybe somebody has already dealt with this problem.

First of all, I run the August 2.2-SNAP, on a PPRO 150, with a Matrox
Millenium video card. To get the Matrox working I bought the AcceleratedX
server from Xinside -- I think this may be the problem. When I hit a java
applet, the browser leaves space for the applet, but it never actually
displays. However, when I set my display over to my 486 win95 machine
(running eXceed 5) the java applets show up just fine... which pretty much
means my X server is the cause of my problems, no?

When I installed the AccelX server, I only had one problem - it couldn't
find libc.so.2.2 -> so I linked it to /usr/lib/libc.so.3.0. Everything
seemed fine.. the X server ran with no problems, and I was amazed at the
performance of AccelX!! Until it wouldn't show Java, that is  :-)

So, after it displayed on the PC, I grabbed the older libc.so.2.2 from the
2.1.5 CD and threw it in /usr/lib. I rebooted and the system seemed to
come up fine. But still no Java -- plus, now when I display to the PC, I
don't get Java either, and the JDK appletviewer doesn't work.. 
So I quickly put the link from libc.so.2.2 -> lib.so.3.0 back and now I'm
back to the original problem.

I'm guessing it's some sort of clash between libc.so and the AccelX server
-- am I correct in assuming this?

Someone please tell me they've solver this problem and that I'm not a
random incident with no hope... I'm contacting Xinside as well, but I
believe they only support up to v2.1R.

TIA,
-Mark
