kppp connects to my ISP just fine, but when it enters the DNS servers
into resolv.conf, it often mangles the IP numbers replacing most of the
IP number string with high ascii characters. Needless to say, this
prevents name lookup from working very well. I have 2 DNS servers
entered, so I sometimes get one into resolv.conf without being
I'm using LinuxPPC rev. 4 (2.1.24) and the KDE & pppd included with it.
Is there a fix for this? Has anyone else seen this? I decided to try
kppp first before messing with netcfg or ppd directly. Is this operation
(modifying resolv.conf) done by kppp or pppd (I got the feeling it was
kppp) and can I just hardwire my DNS servers into resolv.conf manually
instead? Will this cause problems when I'm not connected?
A more minor problem is that it doesn't seem to set the hostname even
with the 'set hostname' button checked (sorry forgot the exact
name...)--at least that reported back by the 'hostname' command. It's
always just localhost...
Thanks for any help!
