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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fedora core 3 test 1
2. run 'yum update', say 'y'
3. reboot
4. 'ping google.com'

Actual Results:  ping: unknown host google.com

worked previously before 'yum update'

Expected Results:  dns resolved

Additional info:

I will post /var/log/yum.log in a sec

Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2004-08-25 08:48:27 UTC
this is more likely dhcp

Comment 3 Jason Vas Dias 2004-08-25 13:22:10 UTC
There was a problem with initscripts-7.66 that caused this -
be sure you have initscripts-7.67 .
