Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 169942
All http access stops. All browsers and up2date. FTP, telnet, ping, ssh... everything else works. I can boot the old kernel, and everything is fine.

Description of problem:
I have had this problem periodically over the past few years. Luckily it has
always been on a dev/test box that I could rebuild (I only updated a prod server
if there was a problem). The scenario is the same every time. Use up2date
periodically to get new patches and explore bug fixes or new features.
Eventually, an update will cause the up2date to stop working. It will always
hand on the http access step. I try every browser on the machine, and none of
them work. Every other network/internet access works. I have compared browser
settings, I have compared network settings, there is no firewall running. I
have to boot the old kernel to gain access again. Eventually the machine
becomes a kernel version behind and I rebuild it. I don't have the free time to
continue to dig into the minutia. I have searched Redhat, Fedora and many other
linux related sites for similar problems. I cannot find them. I must be
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.old build works
2.evry new build fails
Actual Results: no http access
Expected Results: browsers should work, up2day should work
There are no errors. The up2date just hangs, the browsers just automatically
say "Done." in the status line at the bottom after you type in a web address.
up2date was replaced by pirut and put (package pirut) as of FC5. Only FC5 and
FC6 are currently fully supported; FC3 and FC4 are supported for security fixes
only. If this bug occurs in FC3 or FC4 and is a security bug, please change the
product to Fedora Extras and the version to match. If you can verify that the
bug exists in RHEL as well, please change the product and version appropriately.
The codebase for pirut and pup is quite different, but if a similar bug exists
in pirut and pup in FC5 or FC6, please change the product to pirut and the
version appropriately and update the bug report.
We apologize that the bug was not fixed before now. The status will be changed
to NEEDINFO, and if the bug is not updated with evidence that it is a security
bug or a bug that affects RHEL, it will be closed.
Closing per previous message.
