I am trying to share Windows-10 wifi with Beaglebone-Black running Debian 9.5, via USB and get a "temporary failure in name resolution".

The setup for this, usually consists of two steps (assuming Windows wifi-sharing already enabled)

  1. sudo /sbin/route add default gw
  2. echo "nameserver" >> sudo /etc/resolv.conf

As I understand, the /etc/resolv.conf file is now replaced by a symbolic link to run/connman/resolv.conf. That is, when the second command does not seem to append the echo-command to any existing file because there is no resolv.conf file in the /run/connman directory.

Should I set the nameserver-command elsewhere ?

  • I just solved the issue by making a new resolv.conf file, by sudo nano /etc/resolv.conf and adding "namespace" (without the quotes) – Ronny Landsverk Nov 18 '18 at 0:49
