vl forum question
« on: October 19, 2009, 04:08:39 pm »

I'm not sure if this should go here or not, so if not just tell me where.


when I do a search in the forum i get redirected to verctor.ecosq.com
which seems to have the search results.

first the cert for this site is not valid. I get "vector.ecosq.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown.

(Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)"

second the site looks awful. why the change from the original?

thanks

The results for a search include results from
three seperate sources.

Those are the forum, sqi howto and the sqi support site all for
Vector linux. This information is not able to be presented through
the actual forum.

If you have suggestions about the Sqi site I know that Sqi would be
open to suggestions.

I hope this answers your questions.

ok, when I run it on a windows machine I can search but on on my vl machine. I guess I have to turn something on for it work...

Odd, I can search in Opera, but neither seamonkey or firefox work for me.
My firefox version is 3.06, that may be different from what your using Bigpaws

Perhaps this should be a new thread but whenever I use the *forum* search  (the one next to "help") I get all of the threads in the New Packages forum + a few that actually have hits for the search terms I used... This is FF & Opera. Do you get this as well?

Sorry for the hijack but I guess this could be a useful "forum meta thread"?!?

I've found that if you check one of the checkboxes under options in the advanced search (the same search thingy that you just mentioned but just click on the "advanced search" button) then it narrows your results a lot.

I have received and answer to your browser problem. Seamonkey uses
an older gecko version. This creates an incompatibility with that browser
rendering, and also the reason that the security certificate shows as not being
valid. The certificate I have been assured is valid.

Also note that FF 2 is not supported as well for this application.

Apparently this stems from java.
