In order to be able to run either the netscape installer of netscape 6 on RedHat version 7, you must install the 
Standard C++ libraries for Red Hat 6.2 backwards compatibility. You can find the package on the RedHat 7 
installation CD or at the following address: http://www.redhat.com/swr/i386/compat-libstdc++-6.2-
2.9.0.9.i386.html

This information is in the RTM release notes for Netscape 6. Marking fixed.

Reopening. Netscape 6 is not the only release from mozilla.org! It needs 
relnoting in other release notes too.

I have redhat 7.2, installed compat-libstdc++-6.2-2.9.0.16, but get this when I
try to install netscape 6.2:

"fatal error [-618]: couldn't open xpistub library" comes in a popup. the
installer says "Extracting libplc4.so...". This is not the web installed, but
the one with all xpi files in it.
This also applies for Debian testing (woody) using the installer. Though in
woody, it is libstdc++2.9-glibc2.1 from "oldlibs" that must be installed.
My redhat 7.2 problem was solved by someone on irc, I had to remove the libsafe
rpm , which not only fixed the mozilla/netscape installer, but also fixed a
building error (see bug 83200 for info on the libsafe issue)

I would strongly suggest the deprecation of libstdc++ 2.9.0/2.10.0 due to the
fact that the GNU Libstdc++ people have abandoned libstdc++-v2 and all support
around it.

It would be wise to build mozilla around libstd++ 4.0.0 (libstd++-v3) instead. 

As per the faq on the GNU Libstdc++ site states.

does this mean setting 
export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5
?

The URL given here (and in the 1.2b release notes) is a dud.  The library's 
available from rpmfind.net at the following URL:  
ftp://ftp.rpmfind.net/linux/redhat/7.3/en/os/i386/RedHat/RPMS/compat-libstdc++-6.2-2.9.0.16.i386.rpm
I'm sure there's another RedHat URL that would work, as well.
