View Full Version : [ubuntu] 12.04 broke dnsmasq

April 27th, 2012, 01:52 PM
I have had dnsmasq as the network's DNS cacher and forwarder along with allocating all the DHCP. I upgrade the server to 11.10 and dnsmasq is no longer returning DNS queries.

I DO NOT have network manager installed.

Any suggestions? I've tried reinstalling dnsmasq and trying all sorts of configuration settings.


execution via sudo /etc/init.d/dnsmasq start causes dnsmasq to just 'not work'.

execution via command line sudo dnsmasq causes it to work perfectly. I'll go bash up a script for startup now....


Ahh, in /etc/defalt/dnsmasq the resolvconf setting needed uncommenting so that it IGNORES THE NEW resolvconf system
