Cannot view webpages
Having successfully connected to the net, and managing to install mozilla, I am unable to view webpages. I have tried running my audiogalaxy client, which works, but I cannot view any pages. I just get the error unable open <webpage>.
I think I am missing some packages that I should have installed. I went through the BLFS book (latest cvs) and just installed:
Does DHCP need to be installed for basic internet access.
Another thing, i did configure LFS for using a network card, yet that is not set-up yet. Could that be a problem?
try to ping an ip address (try 126.96.36.199 which is linuxfromscratch.org)
If you can ping it, then you probably don't have the /etc/resolv.conf file which tells Glibc what DNS servers to contact to do name->ip resolution.
The format of /etc/resolv.conf is for example:
you can have up to three nameserver entries.
Permission to kick me up the backside. :)
I had created a /etc/resolv.conf file, yet not with the correct format. I missed out the nameserver bit before the IP address. Thanks, but I feel totally like a fool. :rolleyes:
