Linuix and internet explorer
« on: May 14, 2009, 05:07:10 AM »
Hi all, I haven't touched Linux in yonks, being chained to Windows and all. So I need the wisdom of the nice people on this board. The question:
Internet explorer keeps crashing (shuts down abruptly) when accessing a certain webpage.
Running on IE6.1 for Linux. It's on a Linux thin clean.
Just wondering if there are any known issues or if there is a good Linux resource where I could do some research?

Much appreciated and Thanks.

Kind regards,

Ka Kwok

You said running IE 6.1 on Linux ?
What do you mean ? No one will want to run IE on linux and I guess there is no linux version of IE !
Joking ?

Fixed the problem.
Turns out to be a configuration problem.

Actually ricky there is a browser which work on the basis of wine( name of that is iesforlinux same interface as windows internet explorer ) some time it is useful for starting some ActiveX support as normally none of the linux browser supports that
