Even Opera's help file displays without text, and also if you use Opera to browse local directories. Only the folders appear, not any text.
Although the fonts do not show, the missing or incorrect libraries reason is probably correct, but it's over my head to fix it.
Opera works fine in 0.5.3.1, so I use it there. I'm on my Toshiba Laptop now, and
using 0.5.3.1. Earlier, I tried 6.0 on this laptop, and the modem would not get detected (no wvdial in 6) and when I restored off the usb drive (from 0.5.3.1), I could find and run MozillaFirebird, and Opera, but Opera had it's problems, and is unuseable like that. I don't recommend using a restore tarball made with 0.5.3.1 on DSL 6. Things get put in the wrong places, etc.
The modem thing is serious, no wvdial, this is an expensive pcmcia modem that will work in wvdial, and in MS-DOS/Arachne 1.70, which requires a hardware modem, like Linux does, to work. It's a 3Com Megahertz 56K cellular Modem, Model 3CSM556, and cost over $200.00. This is no simple winmodem....
DSL 6 should be able to detect it, 0.5.3.1's wvdial does, I'm using it now to make this post.
