I had file system errors in sda1 (orphaned INODES). After fixing that problem several configuration files are not functioning. Probably the most critical is the DNS lookup function. resolved.conf shows:


I can edit the file in mousepad, but cannot save it. I've also tried terminal commands edit, sudo edit, nano and sudo nano. None of these provides a useable copy of resolved.conf. Ubuntu documentation says to fix my problem by editing this file.

How can I edit this file and then save a working version?


Run fsck once again sudo tune2fs -c 1 /dev/sda1 than reboot the system. To disable fsck on boot run sudo tune2fs -c 0 /dev/sda1
