Configuration for dnsmasq, just the end of the file, with these lines added:
# disables dnsmasq reading any other files like /etc/resolv.conf for nameservers

It takes some times (the make command) so be sure to have sufficient time.
As title says, here i store how i managed to get a fixed ip address on the wireless lan network interface from shell or command line.
It’s very easy and usefull in a number of situations. For example this makes part of another my projects about remoting audio of my laptop using air-whatever and the raspberry as server, but i will describe this soon, in my next posts.
This is quite a common task, but sometimes it’s not easy (especially first times) to remember these settings. So for me and others who need a static ip address on a raspberry pi running Debian, here is how:
How to setup a static IP Address on Raspberry-pi running Raspbian or Debian
In fact Raspbmc runs actually on top of Raspbian. The main difference is between their GUI (graphical user interface). In fact while Raspbian comes with a lightweight desktop environment , Raspbmc does not. Raspbmc has one Graphical Interface (the one from XBMC) which cannot be used for the usual desktop operations like copying/moving files and folders, edit texts and so.
