DNS Problem (CentOS 5.5 Fresh Install)
Hi all,

I've used Linux quite basically for sometime now, and since decided to move to a new server-provider.

I want to get started from scratch this time round and really get to grips with Linux, but I'm having a few DNS problems, I've done a lot of reading and searched on these forums but found nothing relevant.

Anyway, fresh install of CentOS 5.5, everything went well.

Tried a yum update, to no avail, I get the error:
[Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-3, 'Temporary failure in name resolution')>

I then test with: host
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

I really do think I've set up something wrong here when it comes to DNS/Gateways, etc.

My current resolv.conf is looking like this (using google's public DNS):


and my hosts file is: localhost.localdomain localhost host
::1 localhost6.locadomain6 locahost6

Thanks in advance!
