Problem with youtube, LQ, facebook,etc in -current
 
Hi all

After switching from 14.0 to current a month ago, Iī m having problems like: no access to facebook or G+, canīt play any youtube videos or similar pages. Even canīt send this new thread from LQ (had to switch to winXP) or similar pages. This happens with firefox, seamonkey or chrome and with KDE or XFCE

Using the 3.2.29 kernel from 14.0 the problem is gone. But it ainīt current :)

My system
Code:

bash-4.2# uname -a

How exactly does manifest this issue ?

cesarion76 05-21-2013 04:50 PM

If I enter facebook.com in firefox it will quit after a moment searching. With youtube I can enter the main page and see the miniture of the videos but when I press play the counter stays at zero. The icon for loading video wonīt show. In linuxquestions.org canīt do a search through the forums or post a thread. In G+ canīt enter the menus and the notifier stays blank

Forget to mention Iīm using latest AlienBob flashplugin. I īve tryied slackbuilds package also.

Do you have any network access at all with the new kernel? Or is it just these pages which can't be seen?

cesarion76 05-21-2013 07:59 PM

Hi rkelsen,

yes I have access to the net. It īs just those pages that I canīt see.

The rc.modules symlink was pointing to the 3.2.29 kernel but I change it to point to the correct 3.8.13 kernel modules. That didinīt solve it.

Also, now that you mention the network access, I have sbopkg installed and canīt sync to the repos.

I'm thinking along the lines of rkelsen that there's something funky going on with the network.

Can you access the sites in Konqueror?

What does /etc/hosts look like? Do you use squid or privoxy or some other proxy?

There seems to be differing opinions on whether disabling ipv6 (if you believe you don't need it) has any effect on this type of issue, but some swear by it....

You can disable ipv6 specifically in Firefox, and if that appears to correct your issue, then you can disable ipv6 system-wide. This thread may tell you how:

It could be a DNS issue. Post the output of /etc/resolv.conf and see what happens when you ping google.com, for example, compared to google.com's IP address -- if it is a nameserver issue then pinging the IP will return instantly, while pinging the domain name will take time (or fail to complete). Google's public DNS server is 8.8.8.8 in case the DNS server you are currently using is not working (though if the problem is not getting a nameserver at all, then you should probably check your ISP's and/or router's settings to make sure the nameserver specified by DHCP is getting passed on properly). If you want to try Google's DNS server then you can put the following at the top of /etc/resolv.conf:
Code:

nameserver 8.8.8.8
That will get overwritten when you reboot (or if you restart the networking scripts or bring down/up the interface), and specifying DHCP_KEEPRESOLV[0]="yes" in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf does not work (it does pass the right option to dhcpcd but it has no effect...). If you need to keep resolv.conf from getting overwritten (to make the modification permanent) then the following (as root) will work:
Code:

# chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf
If at any time you do need to edit the file then you will need to reverse that with
Code:

# chattr -i /etc/resolv.conf

With konqueror is the same thing. Disabled ipv6 in firefox, still the same.

I'm not familiar with your network topology, but I'm assuming that 192.168.1.1 is the router. What is 10.0.0.2 ? Just to eliminate /etc/resolv.conf as a culprit, could you try T3slider's suggestion to substitute google's nameserver for the ones generated by NM?

cheers,

cesarion76 05-22-2013 05:20 PM

10.0.0.2 is my adsl modem.

mrclisdue 05-23-2013 04:44 AM

hmmm...what's your machine's ip?

$ /sbin/ifconfig

Assuming it's in the 192.168.1.xxx subnet makes the 10.0.0.2 a bit curious since NM wouldn't be aware of the 10.0.0.xxx subnet, however I digress a touch and I'm venturing out of my league, anticipating a blindside bodycheck any moment now. (edit: nm woulld know via dhcp.)

as root, edit /etc/resolv.conf thusly:

Code:

# Generated by NetworkManager
# nameserver 10.0.0.2
nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 192.168.1.1

Also, clear any caches in your browser, then give it a shot. If no difference, it reduces the chance that resolv.conf is the issue.

cheers,

There is a discussion on disabling ipv6 in this thread,

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...us-4175441796/

in post #8, i referenced this link, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/We...ngSlowIPv6IPv4

Instead of blacklisting I use a simple text file named, ipv6.conf and placed it in the /etc/modprobe.d directory. That has worked very well. The file says,

options ipv6 disable=1

You may have to reboot for it to take effect.

Thanks to board member acummings for pointing me in the right direction.

ifconfig returns this

Code:

/etc/resolv.conf
also disable ipv6 and still the same.

Let me point out that if using the 3.2.29 kernel in -current I can connect no
problem at all. Can it be a problem with the 3.8.13 kernel or a configuration
error in my side?

What happens if you just try to ping the websites in question? Do you get anything back? Do they resolve? What do you get when you:
Code:

nslookup domainyoucantreach
