2017-03-21 03:34:39 -0500 asked a question How do I prioritize ipv4 over ipv6?

I was able to do this on ubuntu by editing /etc/gai.conf but couldn't find that file on Fedora.

2017-03-20 20:02:49 -0500 asked a question Can I skip a release when updating my system?

I have a dvd with Fedora 23 I want to install. Can I upgrade to 25 and skip 24? And Is there a way to upgrade while installing the system?

2017-03-19 09:09:08 -0500 asked a question How do I install sofware without a .rpm package?

I want to install this sofware on Fedora, but it doesn't have a .rpm package. Is there a way to manage it with dnf so I can get updates with the rest of the system or do I really have to use make ? http://deadbeef.sourceforge.net/

That's wrong though. I can access those sites with other programs while the other ones are having this problem.

2017-03-14 21:47:35 -0500 commented question some programs can't connect to the internet - pls help

I was using ubuntu.

2017-03-14 11:10:26 -0500 commented question some programs can't connect to the internet - pls help

Fedora 25. I tried other proxy options for Midori it gives the error:

Midori can't find the page you're looking for

The page located at “www.youtube.com” cannot be found. Check the web address for misspelled words and try again. Error resolving '': No address associated with hostname

2017-03-14 09:37:10 -0500 asked a question some programs can't connect to the internet - pls help

Often some programs like Midori and Pidgin can't connect to most sites or servers.

  • Midori can't connect to youtube or 4chan, the sites keep loading but won't open. But some sites still open.
  • And Pidgin can't connect to Freenode (IRC) for example but still connects to another server.

I tried systemctl restart NetworkManager, restarting the computer and the router.

Then after a while it just starts working again on its own until I have the same problem again.

I'm sure it isn't the connection because my other browser (Brave, I tried Opera too I think) still works, and I can play games online. Please help me, I even switched distros because of this but still got this problem. I don't know what to do anymore.

2017-02-10 18:46:55 -0500 commented question AE_ALREADY_EXISTS

I meant Midori and Surf. I'll fix the question. They show the loading animation on the tab but the sites never load. When they stop working Pidgin does too and I can't acess IRC. I tried restarting NetworkManager, restarting my laptop, turning it off, but it doesn't help. I can still use Brave and play online so it's not the internet connection.

2017-02-10 14:13:25 -0500 asked a question AE_ALREADY_EXISTS

I'm getting these error messages when I start my computer or I log out of a session.

I cannot access the Internet with two of my browsers (Midori and Surf), and I cannot connect to IRC servers using Pidgin. I'm pretty sure it's not my internet connection the Brave browser is working and I can play games online just fine. Can anybody please help? If I can't fix it I'll reinstall everything or try another distribution.

2017-02-05 06:40:39 -0500 asked a question I can't browse the internet since yesterday

Since yesterday I cannot access sites using my two browsers Midori and Surf, the sites keep loading but don't open. And I cannot access some IRC servers from Pidgin. But I was just playing an online game the Brave browser is working, so I don't think is the internet connection. So I don't known what to do.

2017-01-27 18:55:37 -0500 asked a question Midori and Surf browser volume varies when I watch vids

When I'm watching Youtube videos some videos volume is very low, like 40 or 60%. If I increase the volume back to 100 using the PulseAudio Volume Control it goes back if I pause or seek.

2017-01-22 18:06:56 -0500 asked a question Sound varies when watching internet videos

When I'm watching internet videos on the Midori or Surf browser the volume varies a lot, some videos volume are very low others are normal. I can use the volume control (pavucontrol) to increase the volume but it goes back if I pause or seek the video. Can anybody help? It's a really annoying issue.
