Greetings yet again.
Today I have again a day of induced trouble.
My laptop, running OS114, crashed today b/c it ran out of battery.
Apparently, apart from the partial loss of an important document, this has wreaked some part of OS.
I can connect to the network w/o problems i.e. I can access the router over it’s IP.
I can not, however, open any site in any browser. pinging them does not work too.
My guess is that the name resolution is somehow broken.
the /etc/resolv.conf is blank up to the standard notes from the OS developers. That is, there are no relevant entries there.
I’m using KDE 4.5 with KNetworkmanager, but neither did I find any solution while looking through the menus of KNetworkmanager, nor in Yast “Network”.
Any ideas what has gone wrong?
This can be used to reset your internal routing:
sudo /sbin/netconfig update -f
If that does not work, then you could try this:
sudo rm /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state
sudo /etc/init.d/network restart
If that does not work, then you can go for the gold and blank everything in your /home area (This includes saved passwords in kwallat):
sudo /etc/init.d/network stop, requires root password
sudo killall -9 kwalletemanager, if running
sudo killall -9 knetworkmanager, if running
rm -rf ~/.kde4/share/config/networkmanagementrc
rm -rf ~/.kde4/share/apps/networkmanagement
rm -rf ~/.kde4/share/config/kwalletrc
rm -rf ~/.kde4/share/apps/kwallet
# rm -rf ~/.kde4/share/apps/networkmanager
# rm ~/.kde4/share/config/networkman*
This is all I would try. After that, if it still does not work, perhaps it is time to reformat disk and reload openSUSE. While not the same thing, I had a power supply die on me and I had to reformat and reload to get working again. It is something to think about.
The first one did the trick for me.
