Description Dan Williams 2008-05-15 20:10:41 UTC
NetworkManager treats resolv.conf as a composite of DNS information from each
connection, since for things like VPN you want your VPN DNS servers and domain
searches in resolv.conf when you're using the VPN but not when you aren't using
the VPN.  Therefore, resolv.conf is not stable enough to be the only source of
DNS information.

The attached patch makes system-config-network save the DNS information that the
user enters in the DNS page into each device's ifcfg file.  This will be used by
NetworkManager to ensure that after setting static DNS servers with s-c-n, that
you get a workable resolv.conf file.

When _not_ using NetworkManager, there shouldn't be any effect because the DNS
information will be the same for the ifcfg files as in /etc/resolv.conf. 
Currently Dialup devices already use DNS1/DNS2, and thus for dialup devices this
copy is not performed (though it could be).

Thoughts?
