OpenSUSE Network :: 'Looking Up' Sites Takes Several Seconds When Browsing
Feb 28, 2010
I recently installed 11.2 and Firefox takes several seconds to connect to each site.I pinged my machine, the gateway, the DNS servers (by IP address), and other various sites (by domain name), all without delay. But when I browse using Firefox, there's a 3-second delay while "looking up", and finally it connects. Any ideas what's causing this? I'm using Gnome and don't have another browser installed to test.
I've recently installed openSUSE 11.4 (64 bit) on my system and am experiencing severe performance issues with websites using https (any site using https). Page loads over https take anywhere between 30 seconds to 2 minutes. It's the same issue posted here Secure sites load slow or not at all -- there was no confirmed solution.
- My router/hardware configuration has not changed in a long time and I've run Ubuntu, Arch Linux, and Windows XP on the same machine within the last year and have not had any issues. - I also have a laptop running Arch Linux (kernel 2.6.38) and this problem does not occur using Firefox 4 or Chrome. To add to the madness this problem occurs while running Firefox 4 inside a Windows 7 guest via virtual box, but NOT while running IE 8 inside the same guest. - This issue occurs using Firefox 4, Chromium, Opera, Konqueror, and Arora. - I've disabled ipv6 in Firefox via about:config. - I've disabled ipv6 in yast and have attempted to use both the "ifup" and "networkmanager" options. - I am not using a proxy server. - I've attempted the fix posted in the Ubuntu forums for a similar problem [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Banking Site is very slow.
I made a fresh install of Kubuntu 9.10 with KDE 4.3 last week and everything went well. Everything except the web browsers. Whenever I browsing sites the browser will freeze up. Sometimes if I wait long enough, I'll be back up and running. However, sometimes I have to force quit. I have noticed that in some instances the freezing will be isolated to one tab, while other tab are in fine working condition. what could cause this and how to make it stop? I say Web Browsers because I use Chrome and Firefox and it happens to both of them.
I am facing two issues with CUPS - 1. I have installed cups 1.3.9 over OpenSuse11 x86. Please check below -
cups:/usr/share/cups/banners # cups-config --version 1.3.9 cups:/usr/share/cups/banners # cat /proc/version Linux version 126.96.36.199-9-pae (geeko@buildhost) (gcc version 4.3.2 [gcc-4_3-branch revision 141291] (SUSE Linux) ) #1 SMP 2008-12-04 18:10:04 +0100
I have added few printers over there and everything is working fine. I can also able to add - delete - modify any printers from "yast2 printer" command. I can also able to browse cups web interface via http://cups:631, but when I am going to manage the printers (start - stop - delete etc), none of the buttons are working in firefox5 not even in IE also. Older version of firefox is giving error as "This address uses a network port which is normally used for purposes other than Web browsing. Firefox has canceled the request for your protection." All other buttons are working properly.
2. LINUX - LINUX Printing - OK LINUX - WINDOWS Printing - OK WINDOWS - LINUX Printing - NOT OK
While giving printing from Windows machine (Printer attached on Linux), there is no problem to coonect the printers, but unable to print.
On checking some of what was written in 2005 I find most of it isn't still relevant (if it was then - I noted the w3m-js stuff mentioned in 2005 hadn't been updated since 2003).
Since then a couple of times I've looked into it but didn't make much headway but also didn't spend a lot of time on it. So far as I could tell from other posts I'd seen others hadn't either.
Recently I found out about Mozilla's SpiderMoneky js library and that it could be linked into elinks text browser and did same on my RHEL5 system.
I found Spidermonkey rpms in the EPEL (Fedora sponsored) repository: js-1.70-8.el5.i386.rpm js-1.70-8.el5.x86_64.rpm js-devel-1.70-8.el5.i386.rpm js-devel-1.70-8.el5.x86_64.rpm
I was able to download and install using rpm then compile elinks from source to include the above. Running elinks version after that shows the ECMAScript support is compiled into the new elinks binary. Also setting various ecmas* flags in the elinks.conf does have effect so clearly it is using them. (As opposed to another system where I use the original RHEL5 provided elinks RPM it complains about the ecmas* stuff being invalid options.)
It appears that by default it has this enabled but just for good measure I added:
set ecmascript.enable = 1.
Despite that when I pull up the page I see:
As a test I set the above to 0 on the off chance it was backwards and saw the same thing.
I then set the following:
set ecmascript.error_reporting = 1
On pulling up the page I now see a popup box:
A script embedded in the current document raised the
TypeError: Window.Focus is not a function
Does anyone have any idea what I�d need to do to deal with the Window.Focus message?
Essentially the site is a login page and even though I am able to input username and password after opening in browser when I tell it to POST it simply returns to the same login/password page.
The SpiderMonkey stuff from Mozilla when compiled into elinks is supposed to do that but given my results Im not sure if it is or not.
In short: browsing the internet with domain names does not work. The long version: I've configured my network with DHCP and ifup. Ping works on my internal net and with servers in the internet. Dig work's too! I get the right IP to the requested domain. When i try to access the internet using firefox or even wget i get an DNS error. For example wget is showing the following error: Resolving heise.de... failed: Name or service not known. wget: unable to resolve host address 'heise.de'
Again dig show me the right IP and if i add the entry to /etc/hosts it work's too! I've even tried it with manually setup of ip address, nameserver and default gateway but with the same result. Switching off the firewall has no effect on this problem, too.
I' have FC10,firefox3.0.4it take ages to load any page.the d/l speed is good .but while loading pages it takes a lot of time!while on XP everything works fine even though the the firefox version being an earlier one than FC10
Some days ago I switched from Ubuntu to Fedora and it is just great, Gnome 3 looks awesome. I waited for the installation of Fedora until I got my new OCZ Vertex 2 SSD and the first benchmarks were astonishing. The SSD has an average Read/Write speed of ca. 270Mb/s. Well, now I installed Fedora 15 and I was expecting a boot time of less than 20 seconds, but in fact it takes 30 seconds. By way of comparison, Ubuntu takes on my old HDD about 27 seconds, so a bit less than it takes on the SSD.
Then I tested some software, I started Eclipse and compared the start time on Ubuntu (HDD) and on Fedora (SDD). Starting Eclipse from the HDD took about 6 seconds while starting from the SSD took about 7 seconds. The differences in the results are not big, but taking into account that the SSD is at least twice as fast as the HDD the results are really strange. Now I would like to ask you how I may increase the performance of Fedora on my SSD?
Some notes about my hardware: Intel Core2Duo 3GHz 4GB Ram Sata2 On this screenshots you can see both drives in comparison, the ssd is much faster.
I've been using lucid since the pre alpha and I don't know why but I think it kept getting slower and slower to me until I've noticed "Windows" for god's sakes starts up faster than lucid! I've looked for some suggestions but nothing paid off. I've made a boot chart for my boot. I've noticed mount.ntfs-3g is taking too much time but how to stop it. My fstab is
I just installed linux mint a couple of days ago and everything went great but now the grub screen takes about 20 seconds to a minute to load. It's not a huge issue but kind of annoying since the one that ubuntu installed took a second and I was at the menu. I imagine that it has to do with the background picture but i'm not sure if that would slow it down that much.
I'm facing an odd problem with a fresh install of OpenSuse 11.4 on a Dell PE-2950, using NIC Broadcom BCM5708C (rev 12) NetXtream II. Driver's are up to date. I'd installed vsftpd and configure it. I can connect from anywhere in the network where I setup this Server. The odd problem is that when I'm sending a big file (5.5 GiB for example), from another PE-2950 server (Windows Server 2003 64 bits R2) with another BCM5708C nic, the speed of the transfer starts at 90 MiB/s approx. but after 30 seconds , it drops to 15 MiB/s and never raise again. Driver's are up to date too.
However, from another Server in the network, a Dell R710 with SLES 10 SP3, the transfer speed is at 90-100-110 MiB/s all the time. The switch is a HP Procurve 2910al-24G, with all ports at gigabit speed. I'd tried with different FTP clients in Windows: WinSCP and the Windows's ftp client, but the result is the same: speed falls down after 30 seconds approx. using the Windows-Box.
I'm hoping someone might be able to suggest what went wrong with my networking, so I can continue using OpenSUSE! I've been running version 11.3 with KDE (64 bit) for a few months now (dual booting with Ubuntu); everything had been working fine until about a week ago - the only issue I had was that some internet-based things seemed a bit slower than in Ubuntu.
Anyway, after the last set of updates I installed (around Jan. 6th; there was a kernel update and a few other things. I'm not sure where to locate the history in YaST) I lost functionality of all internet-based programs, with the exception of Firefox. (I'm using Firefox in openSUSE right now to access this forum, for example.) Although I can browse the web just fine, I can't use Thunderbird to check email, the weather and comics plasma applets don't work, and the system can no longer connect to the software repositories.
I didn't change any settings (to my knowledge), but somehow Internet access is being denied to most of my system!
I am running FC12 x86_64 with KDE 4.3.3 using an NVidia GeForce 9600 graphics card. I installed the drivers followings leigh's procedure and everything works fine -- apart from the fact that clicking the the "f" button to bring up the K menu takes between 8 and 10 seconds. Same thing happens if I select anything from the K desktop pop-up menu, like the Konsole or the run command for example. I disabled desktop effects but this had no impact.
I'm running Fedora 14. I'm running a Athlon X2 with 4gb memory and nVidia 8400. I'm using the nvidia drivers ver 260. I'm running KDE 4.6. I've disabled desktop effects (when turnt on they work a charm, performance issues are the same either way). If I open any more than a few applications at once, the system grinds to a halt. even working with Kwrite is painful and it can take several seconds just to move the cursor, browsing the file is almost impossible.
When I have even 7 windows open X goes into a frenzy and sticks around 90% cpu usage. Even with no windows open if I move my mouse between screens X cpu usage stays between 50% and 90%. The system is unbearably slow. i have a XP Pro system with the same spec, lower GPU and I have no problems having 2/3 Visual Studios open, Photoshop, a few skype windows, Eclipse and the android emulator the system remains responsive but with this Linux box I can't even do basic stuff in Kwrite without it grinding to a haltJust.
My samba seems to be mis-configured somehow. I had been using Ubuntu 10.04 and my samba browsing of my samba shares on my HTPC (running XBMCLive) had all been working fine. Then I upgraded to openSuSE 11.2 64bit. Great OS by the way!Ok so I chekced my other PC's running Ubuntu and going to the network folder I see my XBMCLive machine. Double click him and now I see my shares on that PC. So now I know its specific to my SuSE install.
Now on SuSE if I use Dolphin file manager and go to Network -> Samba Shares -> workgroup I dont see anything. And then down the bottom of the window I will see timeout error on workgroup. "workgroup" is the correct workgroup. All the services are running winbind, smbd, nmbd, xinit, swat. Firewall disabled.However when I try the above and I get the timeout error I then go to the address bar in Dolphin where it has smb as the drop down item and in the text field type in the XBMCLive PC ip address and hit enter. Then immediately I can see my shares!!! So it is working but I cant see my shares under Network->Samba Shares->workgroup.I notice in my samba error logs for log.smbd I keep seeing this;smbd_open_once_socket: open_socket_in: Address already in use
I currently have a LAMP server running with multiple virtual hosts configured. I have one virtual host with a sub directory that contains pdf news letters.do not want the directory browsable and tried putting an index.php file that re-directshe user to the root directory but when I go to the [web address]/[directory name] in any browser I see the contents of the folder listed.
Currently the news letter list is drawn from a database table and displayed as links on a page in the root directory. The links point to the file name in the sub directory. How do I block users from going to that sub directory and seeinge contents of that directory listed? Would I add another <directory> statement in the vhosts.conf file? If so how would I structure that directive?
I'm running 11.2 on a Dell Latitude D630. Everything has been great other than issues with Suspend and hibernate not working correctly. However after about a month of use browsing the web has really slowed down bad. It doesn't seem to matter if it's in Firefox or Chrome either. I am using a wireless connection that is getting the signal at 85-95%. Even though I still tried using a direct cat-5 connection to the router and it was still slow as well. I have the fastest broadband connection my cable offers and my windows boxes on the same network are still flying.
Is it possible to give user only FTP access / browsing rights for certain directory within /srv/www/htdocs and prevent same user to browse all other directories, even user's /home directory on that server?
I use openSuse 11.xx and all was going fine until yesterday. When booting up now, I can't connect to the internet any more. I takes much longer to boot now as if openSuse tries to look for something that disappeared or got corrupt. All started with the latest safety update.
Shutting down my machine takes a very long time! Not convenient when one want to pack his laptop (I don't dare to when the fan is still blowing).
Upon shutdown, I press 'esc' and see what's happening. The last commands seem to hang. First, shutting down the network interfaces seem to last long than needed (eth0, pan0, wlan0). Sometimes, it stalls also on "networkmanager disconnecting from DBUS" (or something like this ) (which is the very last command executed). Hmm, I will write the exact command down.
I'm trying to setup an Apache server on my computer which will allow browsing of files in a specific directory and subdirectories, without needing any sort of authentication.
I've got the Apache2 server up and running through yast, and everything works fine as long as I try to point it to the /www/htdocs folder. However, I want to point it at another folder, which is on another partition. This partition is formatted as NTFS, if that matters at all (here's some background on some permissions issues I had with the NTFS partitions recently).
When I change the "Directory" setting in the Yast http server configuration utility to the directory on the NTFS partition I wish to use, attempting to access the server results in the following error:
Code: Access Forbidden: You don't have permission to access the requested directory. There is either no index document or the directory is read-protected. If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

I've just installed a fresh copy of 11.4 and the updates are driving me crazy. My internet connection is up, but the download stops and goes, and when I try using firefox, it takes a minute to even start to load any page. I have the system monitor up and it is telling me that the network is not receiving anything except for these bursts of data aprox. every 30 seconds.
My ISP offers the service of native IPv6. So my ADSL router provides me with a local and global IPv6 address. However after a reboot it takes minutes to finally see the global address when using "ifconfog eth0". During that time I can't do a ping6 to an external server, which seems logical. So I waited several minutes, but no global address. After that I started a KDE session, went back to the console(<Ctrl>+<Alt>+F1) and now the global address was there. Is this normal behavior or should I file bug report?
F14 live installation. Just after installation nautilus was able to show windows networks and computers but I could not add windows shared printer. I have installed samba-client this solved the problem with printer but nautilus stopped show networks and connect to windows shares.
