    Default Konqueror crashing on internet

    I can use Konqueror to browse my filesystem but not the web. One of two things happens: 1) Either it just crashes, or 2) it displays an "Operation could not be completed" error page. The former occurs if I type something into the address bar that may require some guesswork, like yahoo.com, and in this case I may get a chance to restart the session. The latter occurs if I type a complete url like http://www.yahoo.com or if I type a term in the google search box. It suggests disabling the firewall; I have, to no avail. Same thing happens with rekonq but not with epiphany or firefox or chrome. I use openSUSE 11.4 with KDE 4.7. This problem occurred after upgrading to 4.7 - not sure if it was immediate upon upgrade - but before recent issues with the R47 repo. Of course, hoping to fix Konqueror, I updated all of my R47 packages and got caught up in the black screen problem, but now that's resolved and Konqueror still crashes. Any ideas?

    I like Chrome but want Konqueror as a backup, no need to install other browsers as long as it works, but I suppose that's the alternative. Downgrading Konqueror would downgrade its library and dolphin as well; I'd rather avoid that, as I had a weird issue with my mouse getting "trapped" in an app in 4.6 - I could still work inside that app, but clicks did not register in other apps or plasma generally, such as the start menu or the "x" button to close the app in question on its own window decoration. This issue has not recurred in 4.7, so I'd rather keep the version than keep Konqueror if it comes to that.

    Thanks,

    GEF

    the only thing i can think of is proxy settings. do you access the
    internet directly, or via a proxy server? in konqueror, this can be
    configured under configure konqueror -> web browsing -> proxy. there's
    system wide proxy-settings under KDE systemsettings as well. at times, not
    with konqueror but other KDE components, i had to set those system wide
    proxy settings explicitly to "access the internet directly," while other
    applications were happy with no selection, which should default to
    "...directly."

    Thanks for the reply, phani. Alas I already have "access internet directly" in global settings and seems to have carried over to Konqueror. Problem persists with either webkit or KHTML engine, and of course I'd prefer KHTML because I foresee using Konqueror when I have some issue with webkit-based browsers. -GEF

    in that case, i have no further ideas what might be causing this. i've
    never experienced konqueror stalling at http connections. hope somebody
    else comes up with something...

    This may be be due to some package conflicts, or at least inconsistent libraries, since the KDE4 upgrade.

    Check the repos you have enabled concurrently. (Post the list here).
    Code:
    zypper lr -d

    Seems to be hit or miss, but mostly miss. Occasionally gets through to google, rarely to any other site. Opens my router reliably, but it seems a bit slow (maybe I'm spoiled by Chrome). DNS lookup seems to work: If I type a numeric ip address into the bar, I'm as likely to reach a site as if I type its url. -GEF

    the question asked by deano ferrari is important, i.e., what repos are you
    using? something is messed up, and the first thing to check is where you
    get your installation & updates from.

    another thing to do is create a new user account on your machine and see
    if konqueror behaves as strangely when you log in as this new user, with
    all the default settings intact. if that's not the case, something went
    wrong in your normal user's configuration.

    Here ya go deano, sorry a couple of days passed before I could get back to this.

    KDE - If a package is available from R47, that's the version I have
    -------------

    I have Education for SciLab, KDE Extras for KOrganizer integration with Google Calander. Most of these I keep disabled except R47, and that one I update whenever I remember to.

    Konqueror still works fine as a file manager, no trouble with Dolphin either. I briefly installed Rekonq and it had the same problem.

    What does this report?

    Code:
    zypper ve -D
    * This will just do a dry-run, so you can observe the proposed recommended change(s) before committing...

    Hi gfagan,

    deano asked for the output of "zypper lr -d" -- not what you think ought to happen. It would also help if you told us what version of Konqueror yo are using (Help > About Konqueror). Thr Release:/47 repository has only updated to Konqueror-4.7.1 in the last few hours, and has not been very stable (cf. Factory-oss) for the past week or so.
