Description of problem:
I recently installed a fresh FC2 on my dektop. I recreated my dialup
connection in kppp, with "classical" settings (i.e. get IP/DNS from
server). While the DNS adresses are correctly transmitted (they show
in /var/log/messages), kppp "forgets" to update /etc/resolv.conf.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new dialup connection (IP and DNS automatically get from
2. Dial


Actual Results:  /etc/resolv.conf is unchanged 

Expected Results:  /etc/resolv.conf should contain

nameserver xxx.yyy.zz1
nameserver xxx.yyy.zz2

Additional info:

As a workaround, using the "manual DNS" option works... hope my ISP is
not going to move them in the near future...

In my installation it is not even possible to "check" automatic
configuration. Only "manual" is checked.

it's fixed in kdenetwork-3.2.3-2, it will show up in rawhide soon.
Thanks for your report.
