Black Screen


When I go to some sites to download a rpm for my RH8 I get nothing but a blank black page in mozilla and Netscape. What do I do to fix this.
Thanks

That's not it. Can't ever get rpms from freshmeat or some of the other rpm sites.

Some sites store RPMs with the .rpm extension which can cause the realplayer plugin to try and open the file. Try "right clicking" on the link and select "save link target as".

Check your mozilla settings. It could be something to do with file associations. as ovf says.
