Description Bill Bradford 1999-06-28 05:20:13 UTC
I just took a look at my /etc/resolv.conf file:

[root@cs2867-221 /root]# cat /etc/resolv.conf |wc -l
   2990

I'm a Time Warner (Austin) RoadRunner cable modem
subscriber, and my machine is configured via DHCP/pump when
it boots.

Apparently every time I've rebooted or up/downed my ethernet
interface, pump has been just appending the DNS server info
to /etc/resolv.conf instead of *appending* to it.  I'm
running the updated version of pump from the errata (I've
already filed one other, more serious bug on it . . )

Here's a (very) small sample of the file:

[root@cs2867-221 /etc]# head -50 resolv.conf

Everything works, I just noticed my resolv.conf was a TAD
bigger than it should have been. 8-)

Thanks.

er, that should have read "just appending the DNS server info to
/etc/resolv.conf instead of *replacing* it".  My typo.

This issue has been forwarded to a developer for further action.

I think that this bug was fixed in pump-0.7.2, available from
RawHide; at least, I can no longer reproduce it in my setup.
If you could test it in yours (truncate your resolv.conf file
before testing, obviously... :-) we would certainly appreciate
it.  RawHide packages are available from
ftp://ftp.redhat.com/rawhide/

Fixed in pump on the errata
