Upgrade to Squeeze broke DNS


I upgraded to Squeeze and now DNS does not work in Iceweasle or IceDove. I can ping by hostname and browse by IP. I found http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=527541.

I tried:
Code:
apt-get install -t unstable install libc6
E: Couldn't find package install
Is there a better fix? Thanks!

You have an extra "install"

Thanks for catching that. I removed the second 'install'. Now apt tells me that libc6 is already the newest version (9.2-25), but the issue persists.

Try this:

sudo apt-get install libc6-dev

I think that's what you need.

What would the -dev package do when he's not building anything against it?

What's in /etc/resolv.conf ? Does DNS work outside of Firefox?

Maybe there's a problem in your sources list.
Here's an example from mine,remembering i'm not in the U.S:

Code:
deb http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
If you post the contents of cat /etc/apt/sources.list we will be able to help further.
Just out of interest how did you upgrade to Testing?.
Did you change the sources list and upgrade or do a full reinstall?.

I upgraded by changing "lenny" to "testing" in sources.list. Then "apt-get update" followed by "apt-get dist-upgrade".

Disabling ipv6 in firefox fixed firefox. However, the global disable did not fix anything else before or after a reboot.

Fix the typo here:

Code:
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
Then comment out:

Code:
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ testing main
Then apt-get update and try again.
