I can't fetch http://www.riscos.com/ with this version.
It just seems to hang with the desktop frozen until I do a ALT-BREAK.

http://www.cnn.com/ just gives this:


I'm using SA RiscPC. RISC OS 4.29
Wimpslot 28MB.

stderr file is outputting quite a bit.

I am right in thinking that we don't need to download any other files other
than 20030224_1745/zip to make it work?

BTW, I see in the !Run file there is a line:
RMEnsure UtilityModule 3.70 RMensure CallASWI 0.00 RMload <NetSurf$Dir>.
But there is _no_ CallASWI program in !NetSurf. :-)
