'looking up xxxx' forever
I have a dialup modem.
Pppconfig configured the connection with 'nameservers dynamic'.
/etc/ppp/resolv.conf always contains:
although the timestamp on the file changes with each connection:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 53 2010-04-03 11:00 resolv.conf
Now the problem:
Several times a day internet communication stops and all that appears on
the status bar of iceweasel is 'Looking up xxxx' where xxxx is the site
that was being displayed.
This is only resolved when you take down the ppp0 interface and bring it
back up, redialling the ISP.
And the same nameservers appear in resolv.conf.
Can anyone explain this behavior? And what to do about it?
BTW it again happened at 11:00 as you can see.
