Friends, landmarks and groups not loading

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody.


Since the 4th of October I encounter severe problems, which make it impossible to use SL properly.

My sidebar shows "Nearby" and "Friends" are constantly loading.

I get the pictures, but no names.

I can't see profiles.

I can't send IM.

My groups are not shown.

My Landmarks are constantly loading. I see the names, but when I try to TP I crash.

I'm not receiving notecards, confirmation of friendship and transactions.

I can't listen to straems in regions.


Other things are working.


I tried clearing caches, logging in in another region and reinstallation of the viewer.


Has anybody an idea what else to try out?


Thanks in advance

Thing gettin' strange.

I opened another account and I am confronted with the same problems.

Makes me wonder where exactly the glitch in the system might be.

Hi Maxine,

Looks like you have this issue here https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/VWR-26759 (this isnt Mac specific) & you will most likely have the same on any Mesh enabled viewer or any viewer on the 2.6 codebase or higher.

The workaround for now is to change over to using Google Public DNS, instructions here http://code.google.com/speed/public-dns/.

See here also for some nicely written instructions  http://queenkellee.wordpress.com/2011/08/26/something-to-try/

Please note that if you are in Austrailia or certain parts of Asia, Google DNS wont work for you in this case & you will need to try another Open DNS service.
