Re: How do I prevent DHCP from setting DNS servers?

network-admin isn't all that compatible with current versions of Mint. As I said, the DNS server in that tool or trytip's command's output must be listed as 127.0.0.53, that is working as intended. Use the commands I gave you to see your actual DNS server. That's interesting. network-admin is showi...

Re: How do I prevent DHCP from setting DNS servers?

I have undone the changes I made, as you suggested. I ran nm-connection-editor, set IPv4 Method to 'Automatic (DHCP) addresses only', DNS servers to '208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220', and checked the 'Require IPv4 addressing for this connection to complete' checkbox. IPv6 Method is set to 'Ignore'. ...

How do I prevent DHCP from setting DNS servers?

I'm using Linux Mint 19 Xfce. I changed my DNS servers from Main Menu->System->Network, but the changes do not survive a reboot. I then tried setting the DNS servers using resolvconf $ sudo apt-get install resolvconf $ cat /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/base nameserver 208.67.222.222 nameserver 208.6...

Re: System will not halt

Another syslog. I removed and reinstalled mdm prior to this, and I am no longer getting mdm warnings, but I suppose this could be coincidence.

Re: System will not halt

Note: The file to look at on Mint is not /var/log/messages, but /var/log/syslog. On systems starting with Mint 18.x you can also use the commandline journalctl -b or journalctl -b number , where you replace "number" by -1, -2, -3 etc, depending on how many sessions you wish to go back. Default is 0...

Re: System will not halt

yeah - - it would help to know, which kernel, it is that you are using, you can determine this from the Boot Menu, and before you hit Enter to bypass the Boot Timer. - assuming that you are getting some Boot Menu - - if not, hold down the Shift Key during the boot-up. I'm currently using 4.4.0-130-...

Re: System will not halt

If you are not even getting a /var/log/messages file you are not booting properly. This really sounds like a hardware fault. When I you say the system goes to 100%, as illustrated by the fans. This makes me think you have a drive issue. The CPU is in a wait state for IO on the drive will cause this...

Re: System will not halt

Karl, Thanks for the help. I actually made the changes in /etc/default/grub so that they persist between reboots. I changed GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="" and ran 'sudo update-grub'. I rebooted twice to verify that this is working as expected, and it is --...

System will not halt

For a few weeks now I have not been able to cleanly halt my LM 18.3 system. The system goes to a black screen, but will not shut down. I cannot open a terminal with Ctrl-Alt-F1, which would seem to indicate that Linux is no longer running at this point. I have to press and hold the power button to f...

Cycling MATE Terminal windows with Alt-Tilde

I have found that cycling through mate-terminal windows with Alt-Tilde does not work correctly with LM 18.1 MATE. For example, I can have three terminal windows open, but Alt-Tilde will only cycle through two of them. What I have discovered is that terminals opened with Ctrl-Alt-T create a new proce...

Re: Unable to disable DHCP DNS lookup

Did I just make a fool out of myself?
You may have made a mistake, but I don't think you went that far. :wink:

I'm kind of liking wicd, so far. It just works and doesn't make a nuisance of itself, which puts it way ahead of most software nowadays.

Re: Unable to disable DHCP DNS lookup

Hi Damien,

I'm using WIFI, via a router that I cannot reconfigure (it's not mine). So I'm trying to solve the problem by configuration changes on my system.

Thanks,

Re: Unable to disable DHCP DNS lookup

I've not yet been able to solve this problem, but I did find a workaround. I switched to wicd and created the following script: $ cat /etc/wicd/scripts/postconnect/wicd-reset-dns #!/bin/sh echo "# Generated by /etc/wicd/scripts/postconnect/wicd-reset-dns\n\nnameserver 208.67.222.222\nnameserver 208....
