After upgrading my desktop to Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin I observed that, though I have configured my network connection (cable Ethernet) including a primary DNS server address, which hapens to be my ADSL router to the Internet, I always get my localhost as my DNS server:
~$ nslookup ubuntuforuns.org
Why doesn't it just uses the nameserver I have specified? Can I tunr off this local service? How?
~$ cat /etc/resolv.conf
# Dynamic resolv.conf(5) file for glibc resolver(3) generated by resolvconf(8)
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE BY HAND -- YOUR CHANGES WILL BE OVERWRITTEN
I have missed in 12.04 an utility to enable/disable services at boot time, showing all services installed, as there were in previous Ubuntu versions, such as 10.04.
Thanks for any help.
