Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-09-03 09:07:30 EDT
Just to confirm, you are using dhcpcd?
Comment 2 Leonid Kanter 2001-09-03 09:58:32 EDT
Yes. I'm unable to reproduce this problem after system reboot - now everything
is OK. Described situation happened when I changed IP information from static to
DHCP and tried ifdown/ifup without reboot.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-09-03 20:37:08 EDT
What did your resolv.conf look like when it was static?
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2001-09-03 20:38:17 EDT
(I can't reproduce this switching from a static to a dynamic IP address here.
Comment 5 Leonid Kanter 2001-09-04 09:13:36 EDT
During installation I configured the box for using Now I have

[leon@leon leon]$ vdir /etc/resolv.*   
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          144 sEN  3 14:00 /etc/resolv.conf
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root           44 sEN  1 15:23 /etc/resolv.conf.bak
-rw-r--r--    2 root     root           41 sEN  3 12:29 /etc/resolv.conf.sv
[leon@leon leon]$ grep nameserver /etc/resolv.conf.bak /etc/resolv.conf.sv     
/etc/resolv.conf.sv:nameserver 19
BTW, I'm still unable to reproduce described situation.
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2002-01-24 01:31:17 EST
I don't see anything in initscripts that writes ".sv" files, so I'm going to
close this (since you also said you couldn't reproduce it.)
Comment 7 Leonid Kanter 2002-01-24 01:38:24 EST
Yes, I'm unable to reproduce. May be closed
