Missing /etc/ethers in default dnsmasq config

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: developers

Hi All,

The default configuration for dnsmasq.conf includes the directive read-ethers which causes this syslog message:
dnsmasq[xxx]: failed to read /etc/ethers:No such file or directory

This can be solved trivially by including an empty ethers file in the base-files package under packages/base-files/default/etc/.

Greetings Bertho

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

The error message is harmless; creating an empty file would be a waste.
