Description of problem:
I have installed Fedora Core 3 test 1 on an athlon server machine
today, on my uni campus. It installed ok, detected all network
hardware and recieved both ipv6 and ipv4 address by dhcp, and I was
browsing using mozilla normally.
I then changed the yum.conf file to pull from the local yum repository
mirror on campus. Then, I ran 'yum update' as usual and updated all
package to the latest version, and no errors or problems. The mirror
people say they sync their repository very early every morning. I
rebooted, again no errors. However dns addresses fail to resolve, such
as I type 'ping google.com' and it replies
ping: unknown host google.com
However the system and network connection function perfectly, I am
logged in over ssh to it right now.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fedora core 3 test 1
2. run 'yum update', say 'y'
4. 'ping google.com'
Actual Results: ping: unknown host google.com
worked previously before 'yum update'
Expected Results: dns resolved
I will post /var/log/yum.log in a sec
