Hey all,

I just installed SuSE 9.2 Pro and everything went well EXCEPT ... I cannot access the Internet through Firefox, Mozilla or Epiphany ... This is an out-of-the-box install with with only default changes being made to turn off the firewall (got one built into my router).

So, once it fires up for the first time I sit waiting for ages for above mentioned browsers to do ANYTHING without luck. Then I installed Opera and everything was OK.

This is (obviously) freaking me out a bit so I wondered if anyone could shed any light on why this might be happening...

TIA

Crussell

Now you've installed Opera, can you use the other browsers?
If yes, you need to think what changed between using another browser and using Opera.
If no, your built in firewall in your router could be messing somehing up. (This is unlikely, though!)

Yup, everything is fine (which is odd) ... Not having much experience with Linux makes it tricky to know where to start tracking the problem down ...

SUSSED IT !!!!!!

The answer lies in /etc/modprobe.conf - I picked up a post somewhere which suggested adding the line:
alias net-pf-10 off to modprobe.conf.

This seemed to do the trick on on eof my machins (don't ask me why ..) but adding the further line:

alias ipv6 off

Did the trick !

I found doing this speeds up your broadband connection in SuSE or Mandrake. However in Ubuntu, modprobe.conf does not seem to exist (in /etc). Any ideas where it is in this distro and if this hack works here.
Cheers.

I have Suse 9.2 and have no problems with Internet access from any browser and /etc/modprobe.conf has "alias net-pf-10 ipv6" set as part of all the alias net-pf-* settings. I'm sure I didn't set this in Suse 9.1 either.
