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 www.google.com
;; 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:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
126.96.36.199 host.mydomain.com host
::1 localhost6.locadomain6 locahost6
Thanks in advance!
