I want to set up a DNS and DHCP server to bypass the loopback restriction of my internet provider. I wanted to install Dnsmasq but can't install It because of conflicts with Dnsmasq-base. So my questions are :

  • What are the differences between Dnsmasq and Dnsmasq-base?

  • Can we set up what I want with Dnsmasq-base?

  • If yes, how? If no, what are the alternatives?
