Can't access a certain websites on Slackware 14.1 (32bit)


Hi,
This is my first question. I think I recently broke something in my installation. If I go to https://secure.eveonline.com and click on login the browser doesn't go anywhere. I've tried mozilla, firefox, chromium and firefox under wine, and the same thing happens.

It works on other computers in the house. I'm stumped. Any help would be much appreciated.

Try this:
Code:
echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_window_scaling
Kind regards

Thanks for the quick reply but this seemed to have no effect. I'm not sure when exactly it broke but I installed the gtkmm package from slack builds. Could this have a effect? I tried uninstalling it but no effect.

Do you have addons which alter the behaviour of the browser? I have had the following settings break shopping/games login websites in the past:

* cookies
* referrer
* javascript (NoScript)
* automatic secure cookies with NoScript
* application boundaries enforcer of NoScript

Try with a clean browser profile/new user. If it works, try to activate addons/settings one at a time to find the exact cause.

I've tried with a new user. That hasn't worked. No addons. I've gotten into other parts of the website but any button with JavaScript doesn't work. Is llvm involved with JavaScript? Because I did build a local version of it for building Mesa with gallium software rending to run any game on this old laptop.

I tried to login myself, and can confirm that it does not work: Load https://secure.eveonline.com/, press "Log In" - and nothing happens for a long time, before the connection is closed and the browser displays an error message. According to firefox' built in network monitoring, there is simply never an answer from the server to the POST request issued by the client. On Windows with firefox 32.0.2, it works.

I tried this on gentoo, with a clean firefox profile, with spoofed user agent (to mimic windows firefox), with chromium and with rekonq. All the same - waiting, then error. I even tried it with firefox in an ubuntu 12.04 and an LMDE installation.

What puzzles me is that it works on windows. There is never an answer to the initial POST request, but there are subsequent GET's after some seconds, which load the actual login page.

Thanks for confirming that it is flaky for you at least. It's good to know its somewhat of a common problem and not something I did specifically to my linux installation to break it.
I'll file a bug report and refer them to this thread for further information.

Cheers,
Neug

Curious, with Slackware64 I am able to access the login page

Do you have web dev firefox extension like firebug?
Could be usefull to open login page with it

edit, tried a false login, page processed and returned

" Login failed. Possible reasons can be:
Invalid username / password "

It works now - in another firefox profile in VirtualBox, at work. I can re-test my home environments in the evening.

It's working for me now too. CCP must have responded to the bug report quickly or maybe some effect of a recent DDoS in other parts of their infrastructure.

Confirming that login works now, even with the firefox profile which did not work in the morning. Must indeed have been a change server side. Please change the topic to include "[SOLVED]".
