Package: boot-floppies
Version: 2.3.6
Severity: Important

When I use DHCP to get my network configuration, DNS names does not
resolve. This seems to be because /etc/resolv.conf points to
/target/etc/resolv.conf, and /target/etc/resolv.conf points to
../tmp/resolv.conf, which is the /tmp of the target disk. However, the
resolv.conf file is not there, it is in the /tmp of the installation
RAM disk.

Pointing /target/etc/resolv.conf to /tmp/resolv.conf or copying the
contents makes programs like ping resolve DNS names. The installation
program does not resolve DNS names after this.

A work-around is to use IP addresses instead.

Looking through the code doesn't bring up anything that could be
causing this problem.  I haven't observed this problem myself and have
done many installs using dhcp (admittedly not on sparc, not tftp).  I
expect it is fixed, but I don't see in the logs where it was fixed.
The submitter doesn't have hardware to test on any longer.  I'm
closing the bug.
