When using 'links' on the console, I usually search for Gentoo Forums posts through Google (because the forums' own search feature is a complete POS).

Today as I'm trying to fix a software updating issue, I find that I cannot follow such links (whether http or https) because the connection is being refused. What changed?

No problem here. Tried it with:

Code:

software update site:www.gentoo.org


This is my emerge:

Code:

emerge -pv links

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild   R    ] www-client/links-2.12-r2:2::gentoo  USE="X bzip2 gpm ipv6 jpeg ssl tiff unicode zlib -directfb -fbcon -libressl -livecd -lzma (-suid) (-svga)" 0 KiB




Maybe it was a temporary thing. Is it still happening to you?

Sorry for the lack of reply. I never had occasion to followup on replicating and/or diagnosing that problem. It was in a fresh Gentoo installation that just didn't work out for various reasons and has now been abandoned. So I don't know if it was a temporary thing or something I did while installing/configuring things.

Today in a completely different Gentoo installation I find that 'links' in an xterm and 'links' on the console both work as expected wrt following google search hits to this site.

So... nevermind, I guess.
