Hi All,

This is probably the stupidest question you've ever heard but, when I'm in the Manager console on the Projects tab, and I've selected a Project, I have a number of buttons on the left hand side. None of the buttons in the "Web Sites" section work now, and I'm wondering what does the Manager use to trigger a browser open with the URL? I may be missing a common symbolic link or something, so all I need to know is what does the manager call to open a browser? This used to work in the past so I'm sure I've broken something.

Thanks in advance,
Bill

FYI: I'm running Mandriva 2006, on a Dual Opteron, with Enlightenment as the Window manager. The client is chugging along merrily and my results are being processed and posted normally.

Boinc Manager uses the OS its default browser.

So you have to set up a default browser in Mandriva. And since I haven't got a clue how to do that, I'll leave it to someone else to explain. :)

Everything else works in Mandriva, all help functions can pop up a browser whenever needed... any other suggestions?
