NetworkManager not setting resolv.conf and route

Just wanted to check with you guys about opening a bug report on this.

First everything works fine in Beta5 and Beta3, but in RC1 when network manager sets up my network it grabs the IP but does not set the default route and does not rewrite my resolv.conf file.

The work around is trival but the fact that it worked in Beta5 and not in RC1 makes it look like a defect.

See the Reply I just posted to “all I want is a static IP” original poster “WHATCH” on Dec 4, 2008.

I think it’s pretty well known that the Default Gateway is not “automatically” set, you have to be certain to do it.

Although I didn’t describe in detail in my other post, I found that despite what YAST might suggest, it doesn’t write directly to the /etc/resolv.conf file but it does seem to write to the underlying function (I’ve seen this happen on a number of OS when something is programmatically configured). So, yes the Nameservers you list may or may not actually be written to the resolv.conf file but is definitely written to the network settings and works.

BTW - Remember in YAST you have to check that box to “Manually write to the /etc/resolve.conf file” or the setting won’t work at all.

So, I don’t really know if this is really a bug but if you really want to submit you should include this info.
