Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1258489
make the portal helper use the connection-provided dns servers
Last modified: 2017-02-28 04:48:41 EST
Description of problem:
The Red Hat Bugzilla placeholder for tracking purposes.
We can't rely on resolv.conf to have proper, working information before the portal login is complete. After discussing this with the dnssec-trigger team on the Fedora side, we should find a way to explictly make the portal helper use the dns servers that are specified in the connection configuration.
Two possible approaches:
1) use an LD_PRELOAD hack like https://github.com/hadess/resolvconf-override
2) set up some minimal containerization around the portal helper and bind mount a suitable resolv.conf in place
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 26 development cycle.
Changing version to '26'.
