I have an Ubuntu Meerkat(10.10) and my DNS fails.
I am connecting via proxy and I have set both $http_proxy variable and system wide settings for it.
When I try to ping 22.214.171.124 I get icmp response. However when I tried to ping www.google.com, it results in ping:unknown host google.com
I changed my /etc/resolv.conf file which had faulty nameservers. I gave: domain xx.yy.com search xx.yy.com nameserver AA:BB:CC:DD
However as the Network manager is set, when I restart networking, the resolc.conf gets reset to some other nameserver.
I know I can set static dhcp and change the interfaces file but I would like to work with NM. So please advice!
