JuvenalUrbino This is why is better to ask for technical advise publicly rather than on private message
Long threads are kinda my thing 😉
JuvenalUrbino Usually resolvconf will associate the domain entry to your ISP's DNS if using dhcp on a home network.
Full disclosure: I have absolutely ZERO idea about network stuff. Once I had my system connected to the internet without issues I left it alone and forgot about it.
rvp As JU said, in /etc/hosts just leave the localhost entries alone (get the original lines from the base tar files).
Can you please point me to where the base tar files are kept?
All I changed from the standard entries was my
hostname which was originally
So the standard entry was probably:
localhost localhost.local localhost
I think I'll give myself a new hostname this time around. I'm thinking ...
rvp Change 192.168.68.151 to whatever IP you got via DHCP, then see if you get the same error.
🤯 Once again, network configuration talk is like Arabic to me (hint: I don't speak Arabic)
I know how to turn my internet on/off and thats about it. Can you explain this step in a little more datail please?
ie. How can I ask my computer nicely to tell me what IP address DHCP has given me? ... I'm guessing
Wow, really showing my weak points here. Is now a good time to remind everyone that I'm a Social Worker and not a trained IT/Sysadmin professional? 😆
PS. I'm happy to receive reading material on the subject that will help me to understand this better
