So I'm trying to update my hosts file in Leopard and now it just doesn't seem to be working at all. I should have left it alone after upgrading but I have been seeing to many ads left over. So I went to edit my hosts.txt file and found most of the ads I wanted to block were listed in my hosts files already.
There were two hosts files in my /etc folder and so I deleted the one that was empty. I ended up having to change the permission so that everyone had read only access I also added Administrators to the list with read only access.
Well then to the next step of running "lookupd -flushcache" from Terminal but I get a message back saying: -bash: lookupd: command not found
So did Apple change the commands in Terminal?
What am I missing? Now none of my ads are being blocked.
I've tried rebooting and still nothing.
