[Resolvconf-devel] Bug#475396: resolvconf: dnscache script fails to set forward only nameserver

Package: resolvconf
Version: 1.39
Severity: normal

The dnscache script contains two errors that prevent it from properly setting
the forward only name server:

 * It fails to scan /etc/service as a possible location of a dnscache

 * It changes directories before running list-records (and list-records)
 depends on being in the /etc/resolvconf/run/interface/ directory.

Both fixes seem to be implemented in the svn repository:


I'm posting this as a bug in case other people run into problems before the
next release comes out.

Thanks for the great work!
