Re: /etc/resolv.conf bug


The problem was that dhclient did not work properly (no internet connection) because /etc/resolv.conf disappeared due to manipulations in chroot.

To fix this needed is to make this symbolic link in /etc/resolvconf:

ln -s /etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf

I though it was due to live-helper because the same post live-helper customization script did not cause this to happen with Ubuntu live CD.

Hope this helps,

this is a bug in resolv.conf; in short: don't ever use resolv.conf on a

It the whole "/etc/resolv.conf" file itself is deprecated, what should be then the right way (TM) to provide static nameserver and domain information?

Or it was a typo and you meant the "resolvconf" package ?
