It does not work either because with this configuration only the last domain
is searched for (aka iut-info.univ-lille1.fr) and am unable to find host in
The man page of resolv.conf says there may be only on search line containing
only 6 domains and which must not be longer than 256 characters.
My configuration respect exactly that, but it does not work.
I would like to have a look at the code just in order to understand how is the
job done ? Did someone know in where the code of the resolver is situated :
glibc (maybe get_host_by_name) ?
