Forbidden FORBIDDEN: "see <URL:ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/CERT/advisories/FreeBSD-SN-02:05.asc>"
Linux Netscape suite
Was Maintained by: trevor@FreeBSD.org search for ports maintained by this maintainer
Port Added: 30 Apr 2000 08:52:15
Also Listed In: linux
License: not specified in port


This is a Linux version of the Netscape suite (Web browser, HTML
editor, mail user agent and news reader). Using the Linux version
on FreeBSD is necessary if you want to use Linux versions of plugins.
Many plugins are distributed only as Linux binaries.  The Sun Java
and Macromedia Flash plugins are included.  AOL Instant Messenger
is omitted (see ports/net/aim).  The Canadian, Latin American and
British region packs, spell-checker, and talkback are enabled.

The Java plugin does not work with linux_base-7, only linux_base-61
or linux_base-62.

Mark forbidden due to security bug.  I confirmed the bug with the
English versions of Netscape 6.2.3 and of Netscape 7.0 PR1.  Probably
the French, German, and Japanese versions have it as well.

Update to 6.2.3.  Belatedly, I confirmed that 6.2.2 supports
Greymagic's Mozilla Disk Explorer (http://sec.greymagic.com/adv/gm001-ns/)
which demonstrates a security bug.  The demo does not work with
6.2.3.  I am assuming that the zlib double free() bug, if it existed,
may have been addressed, so I am removing the FORBIDDEN line.

I didn't bother to update the generated files for this release,
since the old ones seem to work fine.

Add hitherto forgotten PKGNAMEPREFIX so the English, French, German
and Japanese versions may all be installed without conflicting.

Update Japanese, German, and French Netscape ports to version 6.2.2
(the English port was already updated, because Netscape released
that binary before releasing the others).

Install Netscape in a different directory for each different language.
The startup command is now called netscape6english, netscape6french,
and so on, rather than just netscape6.  Because of this, I set
PORTREVISION for the English version.
