I use both wpa_supplicant and WICD, but there appears to be a permissions (?) issue with my /etc/resolv.conf file. My OpenDNS addresses in resolve.conf were getting overwritten, so I changed resolv.conf's permissions to read-only awhile back. Now, for some odd reason, I have to cp my backup resolv.conf~ file to resolv.conf to get Firefox and other programs to resolve addresses. This usually occurs after boot-up. Why would this be? Here're the files as they stand now:
-rw-r--r-- 1 alan users 166 mar 3 09:19 /etc/resolv.conf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 166 dic 12 12:54 /etc/resolv.conf~
Touching /etc/resolv.conf doesn't even work, but executing "sudo cp /etc/resolv.conf~ /etc/resolv.conf" does! Why is that?
