2018-12-30 First annoyance with systemd on thompson 1 year ago
On reinstalling thompson I was not sure whether to pick ubuntu (with lots of package support for amateur radio) or devuan (without systemd). I chose ubuntu to keep access to lots of amateur radio packages but as expected the first systemd problem already got me. Names in the internal network with RFC1918 addresses weren't resolvable. After some searching I found out systemd-resolved had decided the last nameserver advertised via IPv6 was the one to use. As I could not find a lot of information on how to do the ordering I just decided to kick it all out and switch to normal resolving. Some searching found How to disable systemd-resolved in Ubuntu? - ask ubuntu which has the right steps. Back to somewhat normal, the next step is to convince NetworkManager to use IPv6 resolving before IPv4.
