Description Stefan Huber 2007-10-18 07:37:25 UTC
to define parameters for dns resolution (configured in /etc/resolv.conf) there are serveral variables in /etc/conf.d/net: dns_server, dns_domain and dns_options

the variable 'dns_options' is completely ignored, it's not even used (only defined in the expose section) in /lib/rcscripts/net/

/etc/conf.d/net.example describes this variable as possibility to add additional, non-standard parameters to /etc/resolv.conf
describes changes that should make this work again, but they are already some months old and not even the newest baselayout (1.12.9-r2), which has been release a month after this patch, includes those changes. I just guess that the patch would have been applied already, but something went wrong. If not, please excuse my bug report, I'm just in need for this feature and started worrying it might've been forgotten.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. add parameter dns_options to /etc/conf.d/net
Actual Results:  
parameter gets ignored

Expected Results:  
parameters should be added to /etc/resolv.conf in the following manner:
options $parameter_value1 
options $parameter_value2

Fixed in baselayout-2, as said on the bug.
