#2603 closed enhancement (fixed)

resolv.conf should be in /boot/common/settings/network/

Currently _PATH_RESCONF puts DNS initialization in /etc/resolv.conf. This makes network information harder to find, as it's scattered between /boot/beos/etc/ and /boot/common/settings/network/. Separation of user configuration data from system also allows trivial upgrade by replacing the /boot/beos/ system directory tree.

So it's a small thing, but I think /boot/common/settings/network/resolv.conf would be better.

Replying to alexbl:

It looks like not finished at this time. At least hrev33990 put it under .../etc/resolv.conf during configuration of the static IP on my system. Thank you for this comment - I have manually copied this file to ../settings/network/resolv.conf and fixed my "names resolution" problem! :-)

Indeed, thanks for the note. That problem should be gone with hrev33993 now, too.
