Re: Dnsmasq and resolvconf was Re: AAAARGHHHHH - aptitude hosed my system
If it is not a benefit for you to do above things, I do not see a reason
to have dnsmasq installed on any of your machines and certainly not on a
laptop, but if it is installed and things are working the words 'if it's
not broke don't fix it' come to mind. ;)
the reason for which I do benefit from having dnsmasq running on my
laptop is that it does DNS caching for the laptop itself. I am not using
it's DHCP capability since my laptop is the only dynamic address PC on
my home LAN.
My /etc/resolv.conf is setup with a nameserver 127.0.0.1 which is
dnmasq. All subsequent lookups to same names are locally served by dnsmasq.
Hope I managed to explain myself.
