@george1421 said in dnsmasq won't start automatically. [SOLVED]:
@fog_newb Well there are really two commands you need to use.
- Enable the service to start every reboot
systemctl enable dnsmasq
- To start the service now
systemctl start dnsmasq
These are two distinct actions and one doesn’t depend on the other.
Thanks. I have used both of those commands before trying to get it to autostart on boot. I haven’t used them since running
sudo systemctl enable dnsmasq , which was the one that got dnsmasq starting on boot for me. Perhaps since I used those commands prior it is all good?
I went through my bash history and saw I almost used
sudo systemctl enable dnsmasq I had the syntax messed up though. I used
sudo systemctl dnsmasq enable
I am really starting to like Linux. I digress, I am mostly a casual so I doubt I will ever have it on my daily driver but I am thinking about trying it on a laptop. I don’t know though, sometimes, I just like to point and click.
