Receiving error “ping: unknown host “

I was trying to ping google.com on my linux test box and was receiving the

ping: unknown host http://www.google.com

I was able to ping the ip address, so I started troubleshooting looking for hostname, ip address, resolv.conf. I found that DNS was wrong and changed the nameserver ip address in /etc/resolv.conf to fix the issue.

Linux – (RHEL 4 or 5) : unable to login to machine, as grub is corrupt and you are in grub prompt

You have dual operating systems on your laptop: Windows 7/XP and Linux on the same machine, you choose GRUB as boot loader while installation.

Some day, you may reinstall the windows or change the partition on your machine, grub gets corrupted and you find difficulty in resolving this issue.

But the solution is to simple and you need to follow below steps:
1. Run “find /boot/grub/stage1” in grub prompt:
(Remember that for grub (hd0,1) means hda (primary controller master), second partition.)

grub> find /boot/grub/stage1

you may receive the output something like below:

Then run “setup (hd0,7)” and “reboot” commands

grub> setup (hd0,7)
grub> reboot

System will reboot and you will be redirected to list page.

If you want to make some changes to the boot menu, press “e” to edit you must edit the file: /boot/grub/menu.lst

A sample file on my machine:
title Red Hat Linux (2.6.9-78)
root (hd0,7)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-78.ELsmp ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.9-78.ELsmp.img
title Red Hat Linux (2.6.9-78)
root (hd0,7)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-78.EL ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.9-78.EL.img
title Other
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

It will change the page for temporarily so that you can login.
Once you login edit /boot/grub/menu.lst to change it permanently.

That should fix it.
