Hi

my computer keeps getting hung up on "configuring network interfaces"

i cannot edit


/etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf

to shorten the time out

as it says permission denied even though I'm in as root

sudo chmod 644 /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf
sudo gedit /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf

?

you don't need to edit the permissions on the file, just use sudo to edit it


sudo nano /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf
or

gksu mousepad /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf
