Description gzou 1999-08-15 16:17:32 UTC
pump doesn't retrieve DNS server ip address - no
/etc/resolve.conf is generated. As a consequence, a linux
box using DHCP protocol could not lookup internet address by
hostname. However, dhcpcd, which pump is supposed to
replace, generates /etc/resolve.conf automatically.  pump
(or any startup scripts that use pump) should be modified to
do the same.

Comment 1 David Lawrence 1999-08-17 16:35:59 UTC
This used to be a problem with earlier versions of the pump packages
as orginally shipped with 6.0. It has been fixed in the latest
release. Please download and install the latest pump rpm

Please reopen this report if the problem continues.
