1 The first reboot after recent update of the system have
2 shown that I cannot open any webpage in Firefox.
4 More exactly, Firefox or my system cannot any more resolve
5 URL to IP address (sorry if I use wrong terms).
7 Thus,
8 host
9 gives:
10 ;; connection timed out no servers could be reached
12 Nevertheless
13 dig @
14 reports the corresponding IP adresses.
16 I have not changed any my network settings and my
17 /etc/conf.d/net file still contains list of my DNS servers
18 that contains server as well but somehow it is
19 not enough any more. :(
21 During my last system update, I suddenly found that
22 I had to update about 150 packages, what was a little
23 bit strange as I update my system at least once a week.
25 I have attributed that to the remnants of gnome2 (now I am using
26 fxce4) that I have not cleaned completely and that is now going
27 to update. So, I deviated a bit from my usual system update routine
28 trying to fix that. Nevertheless, as to my view, during my system update
29 I did nothing to distroy the DNS lookup.
31 Luckily, I save my system update logs and now can attach
32 the last one to this e-mail.
34 Please, help me to recover my internet access,
35 as I still have to do a lot of real work till Monday
36 and have not enough time to investigate this problem
37 alone and without a proper internet access. :(
