I have completed a new install of Arch and cannot resolve outside hostnames. The dns is pointing to my isp's dns, do I need to run my own dns to resolve? I can ping the isp's dns server so I know it's just a resolution issue.
nsswitch.conf has hosts: files dns
host.conf has order hosts,bind
I have searched the forums and come up with nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. -Alec
DNS servers are stored in /etc/resolv.conf
Thanks for your response, I have setup resolve.conf
search myhost.domain.com domain.com
Also the hosts file lists the nameservers.
But I still cannot resolve.
resolv.conf should look like this.
nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
Thank you so much. I di not realize "nameserver" was a parameter value.
