http://ubuntuforums.org – I've had dnsmasq installed for years to cache DNS requests. It's always worked well and there was a bug/wishlist item submitted for NetworkManager to do caching. Looks like it's happened. I updated to find a complete lack of DNS resolving unless I stopped dnsmasq ($ sudo service dnsmasq stop), and found another process running bound to 127.0.1.1: $ ps aux | grep dns nobody 2022 0.0 0.0 28876 1532 ? S 12:47 0:00 /usr/sbin/dnsmasq --no-resolv --keep-in-foreground --no-hosts --bind-interfaces --pid-file=/var/run/sendsigs.omit.d/network-manager.dnsmasq.pid --listen-address=12 (Hardware)
