web browsing limited, why?
To start off:
I installed Suse on two seperate ocassions and both times had the same behavior as I now have with Mandrake Linux 10.0 installed on the same machine along with 3 flavors of Window$.
I can browse to some sites such as Yahoo but am unable to view search results or connect to any Mandrake update site. Get an error:
An error occured while loading http://www.mandrakesoft.com/:
Could not connect to host www.mandrakesoft.com
This same problem was exhibited in both installations of Suse 9.0 and 9.1. I did post the question in the Suse forum and recieved one suggestion: Check browser settings.
I then did numerous browser setting changes and reboots, problem reamained. I am stumped as to what is happening.
