Only loads?

Okay, so recently, I was using fedora 11.
I found out about suse, and wanted to give it a try, I discovered that it fits my needs much better than fc, so I switched.

I have the same problem I encountered when using fc 11 though, only loads for me, every page on that website loads, I can ping and get results, even on any other website I ping I get results.

When I was using fedora, I was only able to view one page, ping websites via terminal, and download updates. It says i’m connected to the internet, but there aren’t any websites that display except the one mentioned.

Has this ever been a problem before? I spent some time searching the forums, but haven’t found anything related.

I also tried to use the DSL configuration through the computer, but that didn’t seem to help me at all.

Does anybody have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Check your MTU and resize it if necessary, also check (and disable) IPv6.

(Searching the forums/google on MTU and IPv6 will give you lots of information, similar/the same problems have been reported many times.)

I’ve turned off ipv6 and the problem still persists.

MTU has been resized, any other suggestions?

And why would only load and not any other website?

Is there a restriction or something going on? This is very strange.

strange indeed! i guess you installed openSUSE over the Fedora system
and elected to keep your /home directory, right?

try using YaST to add a new, test user…then, log out and log back in
as that test user, and see if you can get to

if so, then somehow you or Fedora screwed your /home directory…

it you are still unable to get to other sites, then i have some
questions for you:

how are you connected to the net? if you ping what IP is
shown? are you behind a proxy? maybe using a university or corporate LAN?

the strange behavior, is it restricted only to firefox? have you tried
Konqueror or (from a command line type)


can you read the news (no pictures or sound) just text??


Actually, after turning off ipv6 and restarting the computer, all webpages load properly.

It’s weird because I had the same problem with fedora, but ipv6 was already turned off, so I wasn’t able to fix it that way.

Thank you so much for your help, everything is working great now, and i love SuSE.
