Description Mads Kiilerich 1999-07-15 17:40:48 UTC
Using an nt dhcp server, providing dns, domainname and
default gateway -- and ip address. It works OK with 5.2.

In 6.0 /etc/resolv.conf isn't updated properly.

The address assignment seems to work ok. If the missing
information is provided manually the machine works OK.

The bug makes it pretty hard to maintain 6.0 clients...

You are 100% right. And fast as well...

I _thought_ I had updated all packages -- but now I recall that when I
tried i was stopped by the dysfunctional network.

Sorry for bothering you - and kudos for your response.
