a strange thing


Hi at all,

i fixed since few days ago a problem with /etc/resolv.conf file, but now i has already another problem with the same file!

My last problem with that file was that it did not have the right permissions. I mean that it was set as readable and writeable only for root. That caused that only root could access to the net.
I addressed that problem with:

Code:
chmod 644 /etc/resolv.conf
but now every time that i start-up the system the file has old permissions.
So every time i change its permissions, and the story goes on...
I opened the /etc/profile looking for something that changes the permission at that file. But it was not successfully.
Now i don't know where could be the instruction that chages the /etc/resolv.conf permissions.
Since i installed the Slackware10 i did not changed some configuration file to obtain this result...
I really don't know where i can see...
Some ideas?

Thanks in advance.

hi,

i think you use dhcp ?
that not only gives you an ip-adress but also a " resolv.conf" file.

you could edit /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 and change all calls to " dhcpcd......... " to "dhcpcd...-R...."
( example : /sbin/dhcpcd -d -t 10 -R eth${1} )

or put the " chmod " command in " /etc/rc.d/rc.local "

but i don't understand why permissions change ??

thanks egag for your early replay, and sorry for my late answer. Anyway i tried to understand the problem using you advices, but the problem persisted, so i opened the adsl-start and i putted a

Code:
chmod 644 /etc/resolv.conf
command line at the end of the script.
This because even a lot of tests i was not able to understand where the scripts fails. I tried to print some messages, but the script (with echo commands) was not able to work correctly.
At the end this heuristic solution works well.

Thanks
Alberto

ah...nice you've got it working.

and the solution......i also don't understand why the permissions are changed at boot,
but this works.

the longer i use Linux, the more i believe a " workaround " and a " solution " are the same thing
