Update: systemd And dnscrypt-proxy

  Last post about dnscrypt-proxy and systemd, I was telling you it doesn't work. It could be that the rc.d script with the dnscrypt-proxy package I downloaded isn't being called. I switched to a full systemd a couple of weeks ago. My interim solution is to use opendns and uncomment the nohook option in /etc/dhcpcd.conf. I'm guessing i should also manually change the servers in /etc/resolv.conf too. Or maybe just use Network Manager graphical input the opendns servers. I ended doing both.

So it works. I'm now using opendns and not my ISP's dns. You won't believe how much my ISP's dns block. Torrent sites, porn sites. Twitter and Facebook is sooo slooow.

I am an Arch Linux user and GNOME is my desktop. Just in case you were wondering.
