I don't see any claims about Mozilla 1.6 running on SuSE 6.2:
However, it can be done (as with most things in Linux). Just satisfy the
top three requirements:[color=blue]

You can fid out what glibc version you have by running:
at a command prompt.

What are Software Patents for?
To protect the small enterprise from bigger companies.
What do Software Patents do?
In its current form, they protect only companies with
big legal departments as they:
a.) Patent everything no matter how general
b.) Sue everybody. Even if the patent can be argued
invalid, small companies can ill-afford the
typical $500k cost of a law-suit (not to mention
years of harassment).
Don't let them take away your right to program
whatever you like. Make a stand on Software Patents
before its too late.
