My computer is running slow, slow, slow, all of a sudden! Is it possible to have gotten a virus, and or spyware? I am running FC3 on my machine. Also, I get a message when I log in:
"Could not look up internet address for This will prevent GNOME from operating correctly. It may be possible to correct the problem by adding to the file /etc/hosts" .
How do I resolve this problem? How do I add to /etc/hosts ?
Please give me detailed instructions, as I am still Linux illiterate :-)


After I posted this, my computer would hardly connect to anything on the internet. I tried rebooting, and that didn't help. It is still really slow, and takes forever to link to anything. I got frustrated and put in a "Puppy" live cd, and that is what I made my connection with to edit this post. The "Puppy" live cd has worked normally and reasonably quick (connecting to web addresses), which leads me to believe that the problem is in FC3 some how. Justbill

compare the /etc/resolv.conf in Puppy versus FC3.

it seems your name resolver configuration has gone bad in FC3.

This machine is only a web server? In this case you should consider to switch to CentOS 4.4. CentOS is a recompile of the Redhat Enterprise Linux sources, which based on Fedora Core. The main differences between Fedora Core and Enterprise Linux is that Fedora Core is always getting the latest packages while Enterprise Linux is more optimized for stability.
