This seems to be a common problem with 12.04. I've done the searches and found various and sundry replies, but I've yet to find a solution to my situation.
I've installed 12.04 32bit on a server box I have in my office, and am using it to get used to Joomla CMS, but I cannot seem to do updates, upgrades with it, nor can I use Aptitude to get new software. The machine will not authenticate against the repos is what I'm thinking.
It works fine as long as I have DHCP set up, but when I go to a static IP situation it falls flat. I have networking working perfectly other than this.
As far as I can tell, it's in the nameservers from my ISP not propogating into resolv.conf.
Here is my /etc/network/interfaces file contents: :~$ cat /etc/network/interfaces # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
# The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # The primary network interface \ these stanzas are kept in order #auto eth0 \ for me to easily switch between dhcp #iface eth0 inet dhcp / and static addresses so I can update # / the system from time to time auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.130 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 192.168.1.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255 gateway 192.168.1.1 dns-namservers 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52 192.168.1.1 dns-search hsd1.wa.comcast.net #nameserver 184.108.40.206 \ this data is taken #nameserver 220.127.116.11 \ from resolve.conf #nameserver 192.168.1.1 / while networking with #search hsd1.wa.comcast.net / dhcp instead of static ip
For the life of me I cannot figure out why this is not working. I'm totally missing something fundamental here I think.
The Search stanza is working, and shows up properly inside resolv.conf:
I'd really appreciate anyone's help on this.
