Description Ben Elliston 2000-10-26 11:29:58 UTC
When pump talks to a DHCP server, it overwrites /etc/resolv.conf with the
site-specific resolver information.  In many instances, I would like to
use a constant domain search path, regardless of where I am.

Might it be possible for pump to emit a fixed "search" line in
/etc/resolv.conf whenever it rewrites this file?

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2000-10-28 06:03:28 UTC
Already happens.  Check man pump and specifically the section on pump.conf. 
Basically, just create an /etc/pump.conf with contents of 
	domainsearch "mydomain.org redhat.com"

and it will always set the search path to what's specified
