Discover the all-in-one test automation solution that increases quality and shortens release cycles with the most challenging applications.

I’ve been having some intermittent DNS resolution failures on my recent installation of Ubuntu 12.04. Googling showed that I’m not the only one, and the solution found here seems to be working for me:

sudo vi /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf

Then comment out (by prepending a #) the line dns=dnsmasq. Finally:

sudo restart network-manager

Can you release faster without sacrificing quality? See how with our free ebook Strategies for a Successful Test Automation Project and a free trial of Ranorex Studio today!
