The really odd thing is...all the other openSUSE installs in the house
are fine. My own laptop with 11.2 works as well (with the right
namesever entry)... but this one machine with a default install is
missing the resolv.conf settings and/or network config settings for
automatic DNS? Plus it's only on WiFi that this happens... wired
works fine and the nameserver entries are added correctly.
How is that possible? How can one install go wrong on something
simple like this with a 100% default install when other installs we
did are fine? That doesn't make sense to me. I can't see anything in
the install clicks that were done that would turn off autoDNS.... and
if it works on one default install on a netbook, I would expect it to
work exactly the same on a second install on an identical netbook.
