Description Michael Redinger 2000-04-07 14:53:32 UTC
Right after installation, resolv.conf does contain the nameservers I
entered during (graphical) installation, but search [domain] is missing. No
wonder - the installer doesn't ask about this ...
Therefore I suppose this is not easy to fix, you would have to change the
install disks. However, a more trivial fix would be to check if the
hostname entered is fully qualified (contains a dot). If yes, skip the host
part and enter the rest as search.

What did you enter in the "Hostname" field in the graphical installation??  The
intent was that the user enter the FQDN here, and that would be parsed to give
the correct entry in /etc/resolv.conf.

Comment 2 Michael Redinger 2000-04-11 18:28:59 UTC
Ok, that is it.
Changed to NOTABUG - although I'm not quite sure about this ... the former
method - a field were you had to enter the search domain - was IMO
much more obvious ...

Comment 3 Daniel Roesen 2000-04-14 23:51:59 UTC
The input box should clearly state that you have to enter a *FQDN*.
