I do not use any special DHCP client, but I use mpd(8) to connect via ADSL. I thought, mpd has created these entries.

So I steel don't know, who created resolv.conf. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
