I have a W510, which is probably a much older box. However I recently put d=
ebian (jessie/sid) on there, and had the following problem, which is easy t=
o check and fix:
+ when /etc/resolv.conf is a symlink to /etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf , I=
can `nslookup`, and life is good
- when /etc/resolv.conf is "just a file," no DNS. NetworkManager seems happ=
y, and I get no error messages ... except when I try to DNS anything :-)
I'm not sure why, but, periodically, the symlink breaks. The fix is easy
$ sudo ln -sf /etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf
and no restart necessary: after that, DNS just works.
hoping that solves your problem, Tom Roche <Tom_Roche@pobox.com>
