Wireless network is working. I am able to ping any IP address; however, DNS resolution is not working on ALTboot (direct install) image of OZ 3.5.4 of GPE.

The strange thing is when I boot directly from flash instead of the altboot SD image, DNS works... Any ideas?

I have the same problem with Opie but I have seen a "ln -s resolv.conf" (file exists) error at boot. You can add a "cp /media/ROM/etc/resolv.conf /etc" or create a new resolv.conf with "echo nameserver -your DNS server- >/etc/resolv.conf"
In Opie, then file is created configuring the network (settings) every boot.

This has been reported for systems booted off CF or SD. While I did know that there is such a bug when booting from NFS (and I know the reason why it happens), seeing this on SD or CF boots was quite a surprise.

/etc/resolv.conf is a symlink to /var/something/resolv.conf.
As you may or may not know, /var is actually a ramdrive on most machines which gets recreated during bootup. I'll investigate and report back wink.gif
