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 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): nameserver 126.96.36.199 nameserver 188.8.131.52 and my hosts file is: 127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost 184.108.40.206 host.mydomain.com host ::1 localhost6.locadomain6 locahost6 Thanks in advance! Mike.
