Hello, I'm a new FreeBSD user with a performance issue. I've installed 5.1R and KDE. I've also installed Phoenix from the ports collection. When I'm using Konqueror or Phoenix to browse certain web sites they take forever to load.
It appears the problem is associated with resolving domain names. While I wait (minutes!) for a problematic page to load, Phoenix will report in the notices bar at the bottom "Resolving host ...". There's no CPU or network bottleneck and the problem is reproducable in either browser with the same web sites. It seems also to relate to situations where one web page calls another for part of the content (e.g., www.vancouversun.com tries to load from ad.ca.doubleclick.net). If I open up a shell window and ask FreeBSD to resolve the same domain names with "host" they resolve instantly. So the problem has something to do with the way the package for KDE talks with BSD. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! ...Robert -- Robert Froese, RPF Assistant Professor, Forest Biometrics School of Forest Resources and Environmental Science Mighigan Technological University, Houghton MI. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
