I just installed suse9.3.
When used as a web browser, Konqueror behaves oddly.
When pointed at common urls [www.google.com, www.paradise.net.nz, www.nyt.com,
www.yahoo.com], the browser often [but not always] returns the "error
occurred while loading . . . unknown host: . . ." message. The same erratic
behaviour occurs when entering the urls from the bookmarks.
Over the course of ten minutes, I made 50 url entries [of ten common urls].
Of these, around half returned the "unknown host" message. Some
[www.google.com] never worked, whilst others [www.spiegel.de] worked 90% of
The same test on Firefox doesnt result in any similar problems.
A look around the lists shows others experiencing the same problem. The only
suggestion was to disable IPV6.
