I have been out of action with linux for about 3 months now am back
but i had a weird problem which i dont know how many other people have had
i could check my email or news and of course it sounds like a resolv.conf
and it turns out it was but i had the right settings i couldnt figure where
i was going wrong i mean i have another linux box on the network working
and this one wasnt it wa annoying me to hell.. 3 months without my main
linux box email or news . I went to extent of reinstalling operating
systems and older/newer ones of slackware thinking it might fix the problem
but to no avail. It turns out one day as i was implementing ssh and fixing
a masq problem with network that mabe its slim chance but it could be .
Once before i had a program trying to access this files settings i think it
anyway the file had right settings but licq couldnt see them so i deltted
the file added same settings again and it worked. Well i deleted my
resolv.conf put same settings and what do u know it fixed the problem 3
months without mail and all it was was a fucked file. ? Now my question is
how does that happen
the contents of the text files was fine
but somehow it become screwed ??
has anyone else had this same problem
