DNS - Resolv.conf

Postby coffee412 » Sun Nov 18, 2012 10:49 am

I realize that you can go into control panel / network and change the DNS settings. However, Normally Im used to /etc/resolv.conf handling the DNS entries. Although my install of Mint14 is working fine Iam curious why there are no entries in /etc/resolv.conf ??

Where does Mint14 store the DNS entries??

Might this be related to me running in a VM ?

This post may be helpful: http://www.stgraber.org/2012/02/24/dns-in-ubuntu-12-04/. From Linux Mint 13 onwards, the Ubuntu base is using resolvconf and dnsmasq, affecting how you configure your DNS.

Note that if you are running a virtual machine with Linux Mint 13 or above (or Ubuntu 12.04 or above) as a host OS, you will probably have to configure the virtual machine to use bridged network instead of the default NAT.
