Description Nalin Dahyabhai 2001-08-30 17:42:50 EDT
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to the DNS tab.
2.Set a domain.
3.Remove entries from the "domain name" list.
4.Save settings.

Actual Results:
domain <domain I set>

Expected Results:
No "search" line in /etc/resolv.conf

Additional info:
The resolv.conf man page implies that this should screw name resolution
     The domain and search keywords are mutually exclusive.  If more than one
     instance of these keywords is present, the last instance wins.
But that appears (thankfully) to not be the case.
Comment 1 Phil Knirsch 2001-08-31 06:45:37 EDT
OK, fixed it in CVS. ConfEResolv class was broken, too (didn't remove empty
search paths :(.

The question might be if we might consider only supporting search paths, but
thats something for the next cycle i guess.

Read ya, Phil
