  • Parijath - DNS not resolving - In my default installation, firefox can not resolve urls. When I give the ip address, it is working well. Otherwise it doesn't work. 'ping -c 3' is working again. I thought there must be some problem with SELinux or Firewall. As I am a new comer, I have disabled iptables and ip6tables and also SELinux security. Then rebooted. Even then I couldn't connect to any url from firefox. I have tried to enable all the services which relate to dns and networking. What should I do ? I opened a terminal, 'su', then typed 'firefox' ( as root) then an error message has come. It is given below ... Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See for information. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.)
  • Prarijath - Package Update problems - Next problem is ... the system has shown about 12 updates. When I selected update, it is eternal.
    • jlaska 17:36, 27 April 2010 (UTC) - Greetings Parijath. Sorry to hear of your troubles. Your best bet is to join the Fedora QA test mailing list and start communicating each issue you are experiencing. Try to keep your emails specific to one topic per mail, and just as you have done here, include any diagnostics you have performed to solve the problem.
