Some tool (and I haven't figured out wich one) keeps changing back my
/etc/resolv.conf file, previously managed by linuxconf

Additional info:

I did an upgrade installation of RH7.0 to RH7.2
Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-04-18 13:09:16 EDT
Please try 0.9.30-1 at http://people.redhat.com/teg/neat/

I'm pretty sure this was fixed some time ago.

I thought I downloaded the latest version from the redhat web site (
redhat-config-network-0.9.10-2.noarch.rpm). Apparantly this version (although
newer than the one in the 7.2 distribution) still had this bug.
redhat-config-network-0.9.30-1.i386.rpm solved my problem,
Thanks for the help.
Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-04-18 14:57:29 EDT
Closing as rawhide, as it initially was a bug. The release above is a
development version, not the current errata release.
