elinks was compiled on tc1.  Did you recompile it on tc2?   

i am using premade tce and tcz packages exclusively, booting cloud mode with no media attached, and only using the 2.x repo for 2.x. if elinks has not been recompiled, that may explain elinks.

it may even explain wget.tce (which is not installed at the moment, as the screenshot proves.) i'm most concerned about busybox wget. i can make it work on other networks, and you can see it work properly in emulated-1.2, hosted within 2.x in the picture.

if busybox wget and nslookup from the base were working properly, i would only consider this a TCE bug. since those two are in the base, i consider it a TCB bug. note that despite not being able to wget http://google.com, i can still use appbrowser and even use tce-load nameofapp.tce wget install. BUT /usr/bin/getTime.sh doesn't work anymore than wget http://google.com does. (neither does nslookup.)

That might be the problem with elinks. I just submitted an update for tc2, and noticed that it's about a meg larger.  Let us know if this works...

gee that doesn't bode well. you really notice that 2.x is heavier when you try to use flash (even flash9 i suspect) and qemu. when i start using 1.x more often (right now i do everything in 2.x because it's the version i'm most concerned with, and there's USUALLY only one setup i use for testing purposes) i'll be able to feel if it's faster. i'll let you know about elinks when the new version's up.

I think that's because features were disabled due to lack of support from the dated libraries.  For example, my soundcard (which I had written off as inferior) I now find can share multiple apps.  Larger doesn't necessarily mean slower.  Look at differences from kernel 2.4 to 2.6, for example in handling all kinds of processes more efficiently.

no, it has the same problem elinks had before, along with busybox wget/wget.tce, aria2, tcbase nslookup, and tcbase nc (timeserver client.) curiously enough, appbrowser and extensions are the only things that don't have the issue, including appbrowser, curl, links, ff, minefield, netrik, and i've watched streaming video with mplayer nodeps in 2.x also.

Have you done anything particularly harmful to someone in a past life?

obviously i did something to linus torvalds' great-grandmother. i assure you i am not proud, nor is it the sort of thing i'd ever do twice. (i suppose it could have been richard stallman's great grandmother, but give me a little credit.)

Does elinks support https? If not is there a hack to avoid certifacate checking?

Does elinks support https?

Yes, but the elinks-nodep.tcz extension is compiled without that enabled.

If not is there a hack to avoid certifacate checking?

If it doesn't support HTTPS then it doesn't do certificate checking, since that's part of HTTPS. So no hack required!

You could use a HTTPS-HTTP proxy website to browse HTTPS-only websites with ELinks from the old (but not as old as this thread!) elinks-nodep.tcz extension. Maybe start a new thread in Extension Requests if you'd like someone to build a newer ELinks extension with HTTPS support enabled. It won't run as well on very old computers as elinks-nodep.tcz though, which is one advantage of that extension.
