View Full Version : [ubuntu] Dns Issues

January 8th, 2010, 12:43 AM
Hi guys,

So I'm having DNS issues (with my router it takes too long to resolve) with 9.10. If I'm using GNOME I can just change the preferences. But where do I find those preferences on the filesystem?

I modified /etc/resolv.conf to just use Google DNS and it works great, but then something overwrites it with my router DNS. I guess that's a generated file, but what do I edit to change the generator?

Thanks in advance

If you're using DHCP, you can change the "prepend" line in /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf. That should put your preferred server(s) at teh top of the list.
