DNS problem.
Hi everybody,

I discovered the following problem:

When my slackbox boots up, it has the wrong nameserver setup.

I tried Slackware 11 (2.6.18) on VMWARE with two virtual ethernet cards, the first one is NAT, the second is Host-only.

Both are configured to use DHCP in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf.

After startup, only the ip address of the second network card's (Host-only) gateway/dns is entered in /etc/resolv.conf automatically,
so i cant resolve internet names like

On other Linux Distributions my /etc/resolv.conf has several nameservers, depending on how many netcards i use.

My current workaround is to override the /etc/resolv.conf manually with the help of the rc.local script uppon boot by overriding it with the gateway/dns of the NAT's networkcard (the one which can connect to internet).

This is really not the "clean" way and im searching for a solution for this issue.

I am happy for every tipp and suggestion one will give me to solve this issue.

Thank you in advance and with kind regards,
lfhelper. :)

I think that dhcpcd replaces, not updates, /etc/resolv.conf when it obtains an IP address. Maybe use the -R option on the second card to stop that behaviour.
