• Hi, I have a fog server set up in work, every now and then our useless internet fails and I have to rest the dnsmasq to get it working again, whenever I try sudo dnsmasq restart, I get the message - junk found in command line, first of all can some please explain to me in simple terms what this actually means as I am no Linux expert and nobody seems to have a simple explanation as to what this is,

    secondly I have always used the command posted on another thread to correct this error

    sudo /etc/init.d/dnsmasq restart

    this always worked perfectly however now when I try to run this command I get the message ‘command not found’

    any help with this would be greatly appreciated 😄

    I googled “dnsmasq junk command line” and found some interesting results. Have you had a look yet to see if anything applies to you?

  • Is this a VM or container or is it a bare metal install? [url]http://serverfault.com/questions/257946/how-to-downgrade-dnsmasq[/url] Take a look at this website and you can also try service dnsmasq start as root.
