The resolving host issue

September 12, 2010

I’m using Ubuntu 10.04 and everything seemed fine after installation. One of the very first things that I did was to configure the wireless connection to work with the router at home. Everything seemed fine; I installed Elementary, the Faenza icon set, firefox addons to get the rid of title and menu bars, tweaked this, tweaked that and I felt that it was all coming together sweetly. At this point I decided to setup the ethernet connectivity to an iMac by enabling the connection using Network Manager and specifying a static IP. That’s when the troubles began.
