Description breed 1999-06-15 08:25:35 UTC
If dns server option is returned without a domain option,
pump will core dump, since it doesn't check for a null
domain in createResolveConf().

I would suggest skipping over existing search records in
resolv.conf if the domain isn't present to at least preserve
what is there.

There is a patch that fixes this and other problems in pump (as well
as reporting errors in syslog) at

Comment 2 Erik Troan 1999-06-22 19:30:59 UTC
This was fixed a while ago, and the version on the errata should
already include the fix.
