@Cassanova: let's revisit and automate the steps here. If you want to exclusively use the OpenDNS nameservers, copy and paste this into a text file called e.g.


# Remove (potentially) existing immutable flag
chattr -i ${_nsfile}

# Clobber existing nameserver file contents with
# OpenDNS entries
echo 'nameserver' > ${_nsfile}
echo 'nameserver' >> ${_nsfile}

# Make immutable so that it won't be modified
# by other applications
chattr +i ${_nsfile}

exit 0
Save, and then from the command line (as root), run:
# chmod u+x /path/to/ && /path/to/
That should run without errors and you'll be in business again. You should have to do it only once (not every time you boot).
