Description Hedayat Vatankhah 2008-06-03 16:07:01 UTC
Description of problem:
I've configured some dial-up connections with kppp. They are configured to get
the DNS servers automatically. I will be connected to my ISP but I can't resolve
domain names since there is no entry in /etc/resolv.conf

How reproducible:
Always


Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a new dial-up connection in KPPP with automatic DNS configuration
(Well, this is impossible in Fedora 9 since KPPP freezes when trying to create a
new connection. Fortunately I had some connections configured inside my old
Fedora 8. This is another bug which I hope to be fixed in recent updates of
kdenetwork.
2. Connect to Internet
3. open a browser and try to visit fedoraproject.org
  
Actual results:
The browser is unable to lookup fedoraproject.org

Expected results:
You should be able to connect to any host using its domain name.

Additional info:
I found the problem: KPPP tries to get the DNS addresses from
/etc/ppp/resolv.conf which is not present in Fedora 9. So, it is unable to add
DNS server entries to /etc/resolv.conf. However the standard path which pppd
uses to store DNS addresses is /var/run/ppp/resolv.conf.
So, as a workaround it is enough to do a:
ln -s /var/run/ppp/resolv.conf /etc/ppp/resolv.conf

However the actual fix is to modify KPPP to read /var/run/ppp/resolv.conf
instead of /etc/ppp/resolv.conf

Thanks,
Hedayat
