Hi, it’s been a year since my city got Gigabit fiber networks and it’s still getting problems once a while, every time something goes wrong my pacman timesout after 10sec every single server is like that, the problem is in our service provider, i can install everything through the browser but its tedious, i previously found a solution (Adding options timeout:1 to the end of resolv.conf) but it gets back to normal after restart, is there a permanent fix?
How to stop pacman timeout
If you’re using Antegos default setup, it uses NetworkManager to create your /etc/resolv.conf, so you cannot edit that file manually (it is recreated on each boot).
If you still want to use networkmanager for managing your connections, you should edit:
/etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.confand try to make your changes there.
Unfortunatelly I have no clue what needs to be done to tell Networkmanager to add that timeout:1 option to resolv.conf
You can check the manual:
The other option (that I do not know if it’s easier or harder) would be to use systemd-resolved to manage your dns setup.
