Description jeld 1999-05-27 15:14:46 UTC
I have made a bug report concerning usage of pump to
configure DHCP/BOOTP interfaces. You have changed the status
of the bug to resolved. I have upgraded to new pump RPM. I
have reinstalled my initscripts RPM to get original ifup and
ifdown scripts. I have reloaded network. Pump overwrote the
/etc/resolv.conf with info provided by DHCP server. I have a
caching-only named running. I want to be the first
in the list of nameservers in /etc/resolv.conf. There is no
switch in pump to disable configuration of /etc/resolv.conf.
I do not see any good reason for the pump to exist at all,
for there are regular DHCP and BOOTP clients which are not
too difficult to run. IMHO pump removes important
functionality without providing any useful features or
anything worth using it. Thank you. I think any linux pro
will agree that it is better to make one update to
initscripts then 5 updates to pump. The name "pump" is ugly
