I believe I have this issue resolved. Ultimately, it
seems to be
related to the nameservers from my ISP or some sort of interaction
between my router and DNS. Perhaps someone could shed some more light
on this if they have solved a similar issue.
Here is what I tried:
1. I edited resolv.conf, trying each name server by itself. Of the
three name servers, #1 and #2 worked by themselves and I was able to
install some zypper packages, while #3 had failures where it couldn't
resolv a hostname. Enabling #1 and #2 together unexpectedly also
resulted in a failure. I wouldn't consider any of my tests objective,
as I don't know how to correctly flush DNS and reload the
configuration; I did "/etc/init.d/network restart" between tests.
"/etc/init.d/nscd restart" flushes the name cache. But I would expect,
that failures dont get in the cache. So that would still not explain
your failures when using #1 and #2.
2. From searching the net, I came across a post that
claimed that the
Linksys WRT54G router actually runs a nameserver service and may be
used as such. Setting my nameserver to the router's IP seems to work
well for my configuration. My router is version 8.0 with firmware
As stated in my other post, I would recommend using this, because it
updates the name servers automatically if your isp changes them.
Lastly, can someone else confirm that the green
network activity light
stays solidly on when no network activity is occurring?
This is the usual bahaviour of network activity leds. Permanent on means
link to switch/hub in this direction is ok, but no traffic. Blinking
means traffic in this direction. Along with the corresponding led at the
switch you get a complete status of the link and traffic.
I did not configure ethernet yet (and ifconfig did not list eth0 this
morning, only wlan0), so the ps3 might still be the big exception from this.
