Subject description: How to speed up DNS caching on Linux machines with dnsmasq
 

http://www.techrepublic.com/article/how-to-speed-up-dns-caching-on-your-linux-machines-with-dnsmasq/

Dnsmasq is a lightweight DHCP and DNS caching nameserver. Unlike BIND, dnsmasq is incredibly simple to get up and running. The benefits of adding this will be quite obvious (like your DNS queries getting dramatically faster).

For Dog, dnsmasq is in standard repositories, and installing is as easy as : $sudo apt install dnsmasq.

The configuration section is what makes this guide worthwhile (link above).

Thanks Semme. I was not able to find v2.68-1ubuntu0.2 via package manager but I was able to find dnsmasq 2.79-1 in the package manager.

Seems I was able to install dnsmasq but when I try to run it through command line, I get the message: error while loading shared librairies: libdbus-1.so.3: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64

When I check in /lib, the libdbus-1.so3 is installed. Any hints to resolve that issue?

loubee,

While I welcome the interesting articles labbe5 brings to the forum from time to time, I'll say they're not always practical to put to use. As you might know Pup does many things quite differently than other distros. The content in his post here is a prime example. For this reason and my lack of interest to investigate further, I'm going to step aside and leave the door open for another member to step up and offer advice.
