I was running FC8 linux and using mozilla, suddenly it stopped working saying the error " Another instnace of mozilla is running close it etc...."I checked at some of the forums , I found that in ~/.mozilla/<>.default dir , I have to get rid of the lock and parentlock files.I did that , but it worked some times and sometimes not.
The I decided to de-install and re-install the firefox , by yum remove firefox,it gave me an error saying DNS resolution error.
Then I tried installing sea-monkey , it worked fine but again stopped after sometiem without any reason,I am confused how to debug thsi,looks I need to reinstall the full OS, I dont have the installation CD.
I have connected ny laptop to a vonage modem.
I would appreciate if any one can help on this .
