What Netscape for alpha did you use?
PLEASE read the package's filename VERY carefully and you will discover that
this version is for DEC OSF and not for Linux.
It is dynamically linked against DECs libc, libm and nearly every X library.
You will NOT be able to get this work without copying large pieces of OSF
(and this illegal as you hopefully know).

First of all dynamically linked OSF binaries look for /sbin/loader which
seems to be the dynamic loader.

Use another browser is the only help I can give you.
Can anyone recommend any graphical to use while netscape is not ported to
AXP/Linux. Netscape would also definetly need Motif which is also not (yet)
ported ... is anyone working on this? Are there any graphical browsers that
do not need Motif (apart from Arena and Amaya (for which sources are hard
to find ;))
