In RC6, the dns servers presented to the dhcp clients can be modified by adding the following line to /etc/dnsmasq.conf
where ipaddress1 and ipaddress2 are the ip’s of the dns servers that you want to present to the clients.
These addresses will be presented to the clients even though the resolve.conf file will show different nameservers.

My Clevo P170HM laptop recently had a problem, the screen would go black when booting, in either Windows 7 or Linux (Safe Mode was OK). This turned out to be down to the graphics card, an AMD 6970M.
As this card is very difficult to source & as Clevo didn’t properly support this laptop with BIOS upgrades so recent cards cannot be fitted I tried to “bake” it to fix it. The theory is that solder on the card gets “broken”, and putting it in the oven melts and refixes the solder. So here is the recipe:
- Preheat oven to 200°C. Ensure kitchen is well ventilated.
- Remove card from laptop. Remove everything from graphics card (fan, heatsink, thermal paste).
- Prepare tray with foil lining. Make 4 foil balls to sit card on.
- Pop in oven “chips side up” for 5-6 minutes until crispy!
- Remove from oven and allow to cool.
- Refit card (remember to reapply thermal paste, heatsinks etc).
This worked for me and I’m now typing on my revived laptop – for how long it will last I don’t know. This is a last resort – don’t blame me if you melt your card.

My Raspberry Pi running OpenELEC is fantastic, if a little slow on the menus – very tempted to upgrade to a CuBox
Looks like a nifty phone, can answer landline calls with your smartphone
