I'm having an issue in which my
/etc/resolv.conf points to localhost. Ideally, I'd like to be able to change my DNS settings through my distros settings UI, and have the DNS servers updated directly in
In 16.04, I did this by modifying
/etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf and removing
dns=dnsmasq. After doing this, the namesevers in
resolv.conf would reflect my network settings changed through the GUI.
This isn't working in 18.04. Removing
dns=dnsmasq does nothing and my
resolv.conf file gets overwritten. Has there been a change in the way this works from 16.04 to 18.04?
My only option right now is to make my
resolv.conf file immutable and hard code my DNS servers of choice, but this isn't very convenient so I'd like to avoid doing that at all costs.
