    Default Online update and firewall

    After I start firewall online update can not resolve update servers. Do I have to open some port or ?

    Thank you

    No.
    The firewall does not block online updates

    I am farr from expert but in my case online update does not work whan I set my iterface as External. Error which I get from online update is:

    Download (curl) error for 'http://download.opensuse.org/update/11.0/repodata/repomd.xml':
    Error code: Connection failed
    Error message: Couldn't resolve host 'download.opensuse.org'

    Now I have checked other programs also can not resolve names. Is it possible that firewall is blocking DNS service? What should I do it that case?

    What port/service are you setting external?? You should not be mucking about in firewall settings unless you understand them.

    Please clarify if you have made any adjustment to the default firewall settings. If it is, as you say, that updates work with it OFF and not with it ON, it seems strange.
    There have been quite a number of users with DNS issues when using the updater, and have worked through it by manually entering their ISP settings in the network settings, rather than leaving it to DHCP.
    This has raised my curiosity and I'll be interested in the solution.

    This is virtual server (VPS). OpenSuse was preinstalled so I do not know did someone made some modification to standard firewall setup.
    Yes, I have DNS problems when firewall is enabled. If it is disabled everything is working fine.
    What info (ex. ifconfig listing) should I post here to try to solve this issue.

    This beyond the realms of my limited experience. You need one of our network gurus: @lwfinger

    Default OOW Fonts

    For word processing under openSUSE 11.1/KDE 3.5, I generally use OOW.
    For some reason, however, the smallest font size available in the font
    suites of OOW is 6 point, which is too large for insect labels. It is
    hard to understand the reason for OOW going only down to 6-point fonts,
    given that it makes OOW less able to accurately import documents from
    other word processors that support smaller fonts, including MS Word.

    I work around the problem by using KWord to format and print insect
    labels, as it has 4-point fonts, but KWord, at least in version 1.6, is
    very quirky and buggy. The KWord font that seems to work best for
    insect labels is DejaVu Sans. This is available in more variety in OOW
    but, alas, only down to six points. Is there a way to get OOW to
    support four-point fonts, or is there another word processing app that
    does that might be less quirky and buggy than KWord 1.6?

    Ooops. Didn't mean to have that appear in this thread. Sorry.

    While this may be in the wrong group/thread.. whatever, remember that in
    OOW, you CAN insert the value manually (don't use the drop down). I was
    able to even use a 2pt font, might go lower, but my printer probably
    won't like it.
