Hi all,

I've updated my linux machine (debian jessie) yesterday and dnsmasq cannot
start - no change made in config file, here the log :

I also try on a fresh install (still debian jessie), and I've the same
problem.

In both cases :
root@vterminal:~# dnsmasq --test
dnsmasq: vérification de syntaxe OK.


Any clue about this error ?  Any help will be very welcome.


The configuration of Dnsmasq is sane as shown by the '--test' option.

Do you have non-ascii characters in '/etc/default/dnsmasq' or did you modify in any way '/etc/init.d/dnsmasq'? Can you change the language of your system to English and see if the error is fixed?:

$ dpkg-reconfigure locales
