Re: Unable to disable DHCP DNS lookup

Today, I looked at my LM-18.3-beta installation (running in VirtualBox). I saw that there was an update for dnsmasq. After installing updates level 1-3, I went back to NetworkManager.config and uncommented the line mentioned in my previous message. Works perfectly for me. Again, I re-created your pr...

Re: Unable to disable DHCP DNS lookup

I tried wicd, after disabling Network Manager, but I couldn't figure out how to get Privoxy working with it. After looking at LM 18.3 beta, my problem remains, but I found a solution. Edit the file /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf, and comment out the line "dns=dnsmasq". Turn off Network Mana...

Re: Unable to disable DHCP DNS lookup

Hello again, tclark I thought about installing wicd, but I'm afraid that an update to one of network-manager's dependencies will break wicd, with little or no help in this forum. I hope that you're not jumping out of the fire, and into the oven, with your use of OpenDNS. There's no such thing as "fr...

Re: Cannot Install A Level 3 Security Update named, "makedev"

Pjotr, Ouch. I was going off-topic with my Level 3 comment. I shouldn't have written that. Actually, I shouldn't be posting at all. This is not the first time that I elicited such passion with my writings. I want to assure you that I'm not here to bash LM. I've been trying various distros for severa...

Re: Cannot Install A Level 3 Security Update named, "makedev"

My knowledge of Linux & LinuxMint is very limited, but I think that the big red X means broken dependency. Using Synaptic to install the update might help you in finding the problem. Level 3 - not tested, but believed to be safe. How can anyone BELIEVE that an update is safe when it hasn't been test...

Re: Unable to disable DHCP DNS lookup

Did I just make a fool out of myself? I thought that the DNS-Automatic switch should be "off" in order to manually specify DNS server addresses. Is this the purpose of the switch, or does the switch turn off all DNS resolution?

Re: Unable to disable DHCP DNS lookup

I wish that I was able to respond on Monday before you installed wicd, but I had a little trouble registering. I'm having a problem with bind9 with the latest network-manager update. When DNS-Automatic is turned "off", network-manager refuses to use my DNS address (127.0.0.1). I assume that you turn...
