#3508 closed defect (wontfix)

Cannot put /etc/resolve.conf into image from files/ directory

Reported by: camh <openwrt@…> Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: base system Version:
Keywords: Cc:


When putting /etc/resolv.conf in files/ to build into the image, it fails to copy over as there is already a symlink there to /tmp/resolv.conf from base-files and cp will not write through a dangling symlink.

The solution in the attached patch is to always copy with the gnu option --remove-destination. This ensures that the files can be written.
