DNS address gets reset on reboot

Asked by Raghuram on 2006-10-18

Hello,

I recently installed mysql (Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.22) on my Ubuntu box (v6.06 with kernel version 2.6.15-27-386). Since then, my DNS address keeps getting reset every time I reboot. I have to supply the dns ip address after reboot. Can someone tell me what I need to do to stop this from happening?

Regards,
Raghu.

If you cannot read that, modify your /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/base and add the IP of your DNS server, preceded by "nameserver".

That worked! Thanks!! But is there something wrong on my machine due to which dns was getting reset everytime? I would like to correct the "root cause" if possible.

Gabriel solution solved my problem. Thanks again! Will try to find out more as to why dns entries in /etc/resolv.conf alone keeps getting overwritten upon reboot and why I have to have entries in /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/base in order to retain my setting between.
