Hi,

I'm a developer of Motif applications and I need to find the source code of Linux version of Netscape,
that has been relased in 1998. I searched the FTP site, but I found only the binary version. I actually need
the sources, and I'm going crazy looking for them...

Can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance,
--mghis

Thanks! I downloaded the sources... I'm trying to compile it, just for fun. Some compiler flags are wrong, but this isn't the main
problem. The building environment and the layers of code of Netscape is really complex.

Had anyone compiled NS on a modern Linux system?

Thanks for any help,
