Let's say User X posts this question:
I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 Alpha 2 and whenever I go to google.com it goes to fleshbot instead. It's a fresh install and I'm using OpenDNS. My HOSTS file is as follows:
# The hosts file assigns the name of a web page/site on the Internet # to an IP address. This bypasses the normal DNS system. # Each entry should be on a single line. The IP address should` # start in the first column followed by one or more spaces # followed by the web page/site name. # # Any line, such as this one, that starts with a number sign is a comment # Comments can also appear on a line with a real entry as shown below # # Sample Entries: # 18.104.22.168 news.yahoo.com # Yahoo News # 22.214.171.124 www.google.com # Google Home Page 127.0.0.1 localhost 126.96.36.199 www.google.com #User X is such a jerk LOL The output of ifconfig is as follows: eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0F:20:CF:8B:42 inet addr:188.8.131.52 Bcast:184.108.40.206 Mask:255.255.255.192 UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:2472694671 errors:1 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:44641779 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:1761467179 (1679.8 Mb) TX bytes:2870928587 (2737.9 Mb) Interrupt:28
Would/should this question be closed as too specific?
Would/should this question be edited to be more general? Et cetera.
