    Angry Ubuntu 10.10 switched from network manager to WICD and now all DNS resolution fails

    Trying to post again....last time the post failed after a page long description

    Network manager was getting on my nerves with either constantly connecting to a network or asking me to do so. I dont want to have to disable my wireless (i use 2 adapters) just to get it to shut up. So I decided to use WICD. I installed WICD and then later removed NM. Now i can connect wired or wireless and ping any valid ip (including the google dns servers I use) but no matter what dns I try to use with wicd or even letting dhcp auto configure it, I cannot get the machine to resolve hostnames. nslookup fails with a connection timout. I can't reinstall NM because without DNS the interwebs are effectively broken Any help is appreciated
