After installing kweb, all browsers on the Pi 2 stopped working correctly.( and there's another thing that makes this even weirder)
I've had a couple of people working on this problem for a couple of days now and it is getting very irritating so I won't tell the whole story, just our latest tests. Here's what we have done:-
1 Bought 2 new Raspberry Pi 2 Bs
2 Bought 2 SD cards
3 Install a copy of Raspbian (downloaded from Rpi so it is the latest version)
4 tried accessing a page in 'Web' ( Epiphany ), works OK
6 did sudo apt-get update
7 did sudo apt-get upgrade -y
System should now be bang up to date
8 tried accessing a page in 'Web' ( Epiphany ), works OK
9 Installed kweb 1.6.4 exactly as explained in the manual. Completed OK. Not bothered about pdf or video so didn't install the other suggested software
10 Opened kweb, got configuration page. Seems to work ok.
11 tried accessing a web page in kweb. The browser closed, no error, nothing, just went away.
12 tried accessing a page in 'web' ( epiphany ), exactly the same, browser closed, no error.......
13 tested wget to ensure network is still ok. wget works fine
So, Wget can download a single file...
14 We created a test web page that had no dependencies ( css or js ) very simple page just says 'hello pi'
15 tried accessing the test page on all browsers, Works Ok
16 Added a dependency ( js file ) to the web page.
17 tried accessing the test page on all browsers, Works Ok-ish, browser closed about 1 in 10 attempts
18 added a second dependency ( js file ) to the test page
19 tried accessing the test page on all browsers, Browser always closes with no error message
So it appears there is a problem when more than about 2 or 3 files are requested in quick succession, the problem only arose after installing kweb and has affected all browsers on the system
Any suggestions as to what could have gone up to cause these symptoms? Does kweb install anything or update anything that could affect other browsers?
And here's the really weird bit... This only happens when the Pi is connected to some networks.
Before installing kweb everything works on all networks. we have tested this extensively
After installing kweb ( and this is the same for both Pis )
My home wired network - works perfectly
My home wifi - works perfectly
Corporate network at work - errors as described above
Mates home wired network - errors as above
Mates wifi - works perfectly
Any help greatly appreciated. We are all tearing our hair out trying to figure this out, we will be bald soon
