Hello from Germany,

I have installed DNSMASQ a few days ago, but at the time, the service for dnsmasq don't want to run. I use dnsmasq as a dns-server for my local network, including three other computers. Every time I tries to start the service, I have one type of error messages:

failed to create listening socket for
FAILED to start up
Failed to start dnsmasq - A lightweight DHCP and caching DNS server

My dnsmasq.conf:


The nameserver.conf:


My hosts file:       localhost       RASPBERRY-PI-SERVER   fritz.box.luna.lan fritz.box               ## Router FRITZ!Box 7430  e1-pc.luna.lan e1-pc                   ## Laptop E1-PC  e2-pc.luna.lan e2-pc                   ## Laptop E2-PC  erik-galaxay-a5-2017.luna.lan erik-galaxy-a5-2017     ## Smartphone Erik

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1     ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters

My router is FRITZ!Box 7430. The IP from my RASPBERRY-PI is (static) and the operating system is a normal Ubuntu.

Another problem is the file nameserver.conf. The path of the file is right. But every time I have a look in the log-file, dnsmasq tries to read the normal /var/run/dnsmasq/resolv.conf. This file is empty. Every time, I tried to write something in that file, the next time the file is going to be overwritten, and than the resolv.conf is empty. So I have decided to create an other file with the nameserver.

Thank your for your help in advance.
