Description Oliver Paukstadt 1999-10-12 15:40:19 UTC
Installed RH6.1 from bootnet-Image via NFS.
I entered nameserver etc.
The search-Entry is added to resolv.conf but the
nameserver-entry is not, so i have to add this after

Comment 1 Jay Turner 1999-10-21 18:02:59 UTC
In the lab I was able to enter static IP address information and the
nameserver entry was written to /etc/resolv.conf.

Comment 2 jlewis 1999-10-27 04:20:59 UTC
I've done a few 6.1 installs and 6.0 -> 6.1 upgrades where
/etc/resolv.conf ended up with just "search" and nothing else in the
file.  No domain on the search line...no name servers even though
installs were done over the network and a name server was configured
when an IP address/subnet/default gateway were chosen.

Comment 3 jlewis 1999-10-27 04:22:59 UTC
Also...when upgrading (via bootable CD) from 5.2 to 6.1,
/etc/rc.d/init.d/named is replaced and named defaults to not being
started at boot even if it previously was (when running 5.2).
