never had this problem with any distro but slack (10.*), im using kde at the moment.
in konqueror, some web pages dont load and give this error: (well, an html page used by konqueror as an error message, it seems)
and 'yahoo.com' doesnt load in konqueror.. but 'http://www.yahoo.com' loads. however, 'http://linuxquestions.org'and 'http://www.linuxquestions.org' both load.
in mozilla 'http://www.yahoo.com' loads.. google doesnt
in konqueror, LQ.org works almost perfectly, it seems.. however, in mozilla, the main page i think fully loads, but say i click 'forums', it begins to load like 20% of the top, or so, and says its still loading but stays there for minutes and i havent seen it fully load.
this same problem happened to me in slack 10.0.. which is the sole reason i downloaded, burned, installed, and configured slack 10.1.. to see this same problem?
no clue what the deal is here.. i will be trying to download the firefox package to install with 'installpkg' tool, well see how that goes.. but i installed firefox on slack 10.0 after having this initial problem and that didnt solve it. i also tried running it as root, thinking for some odd reason it was maybe trying to write a temp file somewhere where it didnt have access, but no help.
any help appreciated.
i forgot to mention i can ping all these sites fine
i tried using the direct ip addresses to these sites with no luck either, +/- :80 (with without the ":80")
