resolv.conf
 
I go in and I edit my resolv.conf file, to this:
nameserver 192.168.1.1

# ppp temp entry

I reboot and it ends up at this:
nameserver 127.......... (the ip addy for localhost I sort of forgot it for now)
nameserver 192.168.1.1

# ppp temp entry



I uninstalled everything having to do with DHCP. I use static IP addresses on my network.
What did I do wrong?

What is the output of ifconfig -a

You don't have to reboot. Whcih distro are you using?

Are you able to browse the internet? It looks like eh0 is working.

Yes, but bringing up webpages is really, really slow.
Why would it put localhost as a dns server?

darthtux 10-18-2004 11:16 PM

It will be slow since it is looking to localhost 127.0.0.1 first. Did you install bind or a dns server and have it running? Mandrake has some control center would you can see the services. Though I'm not familiar with the Mandrake gui.

You might do a
ps aux | grep named

I uninstalled everything with dns in it. Bind is gone too. I never installed it to begin with. I'm not sure where to go from here. :cry:

You can manually edit the /etc/resolv.conf to reflect your ISP's DNS servers.

This would give you much better performance.

However you may find that upon every reboot the settings will revert back to what they were set to before.

Instead re-edit the NIC settings in the MCC and add the ISP's DNS as required.

Yes, thats what I do. I edit the resolv.conf and it reverts back to the incorrect settings.

If it is happening when you reboot, then it is in the boot scripts. You might grep for resolv.conf, 127.0.0.0, etc. in whatever directory Mandrake keeps its scripts.

opjose 10-19-2004 10:10 PM

Snump:

Yes, this is correct.

The scripts which bring up the network interfaces modify the /etc/resolv.conf file at boot time to reflect the information given to the interface by the DHCP server.

If you want to avoid this you must either provide specific DNS IP's for your interface in it's configuration or set the interface for static IP's and do the same.

Correct the DNS settings in the MCC.

Snump 10-19-2004 11:07 PM

I think I understand.
I went into the hardware area, and reconfigured the settings for the realtek ethernet card.

The problem now, when the system restarted it says it can't start the X windows system. I didn't realize messing with an internet setting could kill my Gnome settings.

opjose 10-19-2004 11:13 PM

Ok great, you are closer now.

X probably didn't start because it does rely upon ethernet settings to establish some permissions.

Log in as root and see if you can't get X to run by itself.

E.G.

[root]# service dm stop

OK

[root]# X

If you see a graphical screen, all should be fine...

If you do not see a graphical screen with a movable mouse then you will need to run XFDrake again to re-configure X.

Make sure that X works by testing the configuration.

Once done, type

service dm start
