bkerensaslangasek: Might you help me troubleshoot something? Since the freeze yesterday and a update I have found my system to be epic unstable00:40
bkerensaI cannot even do upgrades now00:40
bkerensaErr http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise/main tk8.5 amd64 8.5.11-100:40
bkerensa  Something wicked happened resolving 'us.archive.ubuntu.com:http' (-5 - No address associated with hostname)00:40
bkerensaDNS is resolving for most things but for some things it is not00:40
slangasekls -l /etc/resolv.conf00:40
bkerensals -l /etc/resolv.conf00:41
blkperldoesn't ping from psu00:41
bkerensalrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 29 Feb 14 17:54 /etc/resolv.conf -> ../run/resolvconf/resolv.conf00:41
slangasekand is /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf present?00:41
blkperloh wait nvm00:41
bkerensablkperl: Yeah but its not just archive servers... My DNS has been timing out since yesterday00:41
bkerensaand I have tried a variety of DNS servers so I dont think it happens to be the dns servers im using00:41
slangasekand if it's missing, what does 'status resolvconf' show?00:42
blkperlmaybe precise is buggy00:42
slangasekall software is buggy00:42
bkerensaslangasek: resolvconf start/running00:42
* blkperl goes back to fighting with a passenger init script00:42
slangasekbkerensa: ok; cat /etc/resolv.conf?00:42
slangasekbkerensa: Ubuntu desktop install?00:45
slangasekdo you have the bind9 package installed?00:45
bkerensaslangasek: no00:46
slangasekusing network-manager for networking?00:46
bkerensaslangasek: yes desktop install00:46
bkerensaslangasek: Yep... A stock desktop 12.0400:46
slangasekis there a dnsmasq process running?00:46
bkerensaslangasek: Not locally00:46
bkerensaat the router level00:46
bkerensamy router uses dnsmasq00:47
slangasekthere's *supposed* to be a dnsmasq running00:47
slangasekNM launches it00:47
slangasekyou've checked the process list and it's not there?00:47
bkerensaslangasek: Yes dnsmasq is running00:47
slangasekhmm, trying to remember when else I've seen that error before00:48
bkerensaslangasek: Whatever the root cause is... Its only intermittent like if I go to a site sometimes it loads and sometimes I get a resolve error (regardless of browser)00:48
bkerensaalso when I try to do any name based commands via terminal like updates it fails and if I repeatedly try00:48
bkerensait will eventually go through00:49
bkerensasame with browser.... (lots of refreshing for win)00:49
slangasekand NM shows your network connection as stable the throughout?00:49
bkerensaslangasek: Correct.00:50
slangasekdoes /var/run/nm-dns-dnsmasq.conf list the nameservers you expect?00:50
bkerensaslangasek: Yes00:51
slangasekwell, you could try editing /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf to comment out the 'dns=dnsmasq' line00:52
bkerensaslangasek: ok00:52
slangasekthen restart NM (sudo service network-manager restart)00:52
slangasekand check that /etc/resolv.conf is not pointing at anymore00:52
slangasekthat will rule out it being a dnsmasq problem.  I suspect you have a problem somewhere else that's not actually related to any Ubuntu updates though00:53
slangasek(and if removing dnsmasq doesn't fix it, I'm pretty certain it's not an Ubuntu bug)00:53
slangasekbkerensa: any news?01:26
bkerensaslangasek: No improvement01:35
bkerensa:( I will continue trying things01:35
bkerensaI'm going to swap out my router in the rare case it is causing issues01:35
slangasekyes, the problem is most likely not local to the machine01:36
blkperlgrr i get this annoying my mouse in being held down until i switch windows02:14
blkperland im not sure if i have a sticky touchpad or a its unity playing games with me02:14
nibalizerblkperl: almost certainly your fault :P02:31
blkperlnibalizer: you are a troll sir02:31
