i was working on helping someone to get a suse-install fixed-up for dns,
and found out that he was able able to ping places even when there
apparently isn't a valid entry in /etc/rc.config ( which, by default, is
used by the suse scripts to generate a resolv.conf )
does icmp-packet routing not depend on DNS ?
does tcp-packet routing depend on dns ?
does anything depend on dns besides whatever is buried in something like
(if so, any tips on (a url for, or a book if no url) where to find a
table of what depends on what?)
