dns gone after modifying live-dvd (mint 14 mate 32)

Postby frisil » Sat Dec 08, 2012 11:43 am

I built my own live dvd based on Mint 14.1 Mate 32 bit, using sudo /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintConstructor/mintConstructor.py and following the tutorial. Everything worked fine, but when I booted into the new iso, dns-resolution is gone, which renders the dvd useless for normal people. The network dns tabs in mate control center are empty, not even opendns in there! Of course I can enter the addresses after booting and everything works, but I cannot give the DVD to a "normal" user (one without networking knowledge) that way. How do I fix this? I want dns resolution on just like the normal live dvd does. Open dns fallback is not an option either because I want to be also able to access local stuff like fritz.box (if people use a fritz box modem or homeserver) which doesn't work in opendns if I remember correctly.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Okay, since nobody seems to be able to help me, let me rephrase my question so I can help myself: Where does Mint typically store the information which nameserver it will use globally? Which config file do I have to correct?

try this in chroot :

rm /etc/resolv.conf
rm /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf
dpkg-reconfigure resolvconf (I answered Yes,OK)
mv /etc/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.con

now you can close chroot and go rename /etc/resolv.con to /etc/resolv.conf

Make your ISO and you'll have network ok :)

Hope it help !!
