Does anyone have experience with tailscale from AUR? I downloaded using the CLI method on their website, and for linux it’s a terrible mess, especially with the DNS issues. All my other devices work fine, but only on Linux does it run strange. I am looking at the AUR and I see a few of them, but I am surprised at how little activity there is with tailscale in the AUR. Right now, I find myself executing this fix rather regularly to fix the DNS issues.
No need to install anything from the AUR, Tailscale is in the [extra] repo.
sudo pacman -S tailscale
No terrible mess.
I opened an issue for the DNS problem and they put in a fix for it yesterday.
The updated version of the package hasn’t been pushed to the repo yet so I haven’t had a chance to test it out. In the meanwhile I have been just manually overriding /etc/resolv.conf instead of enabling systemd-resolved.
sudo sed -i "s|192.168.204.2|100.100.100.100|" /etc/resolv.conf
echo 'nameserver 100.100.100.100' | sudo tee /etc/resolv.conf
Okay, if they fixed it, and it’s waiting to pushed, that’s a good sign. Right now, I am experiencing DNS issues when changing DNS in tailscale nameserver settings. I have to keep fixing the DNS with the link I put in my original post.
What I really was asking is if there’s a GUI client that I can use to monitor the status of my tailscale client, kinda like how the official clients do. Do you know if any exist on the AUR that work?
