dnsmasq.conf states wrong syntax for /etc/ethers

Reported by: mturba Owned by: developers
Priority: lowest Milestone: 1.0-rc4
Component: packages Version: 1.0
Keywords: dnsmasq ethers hosts Cc:


dnsmasq.conf states the following syntax for /etc/ethers:

# use /etc/ethers for static hosts; same format as --dhcp-host
# <hwaddr> [<hostname>] <ipaddr>

Anyhow it is not possible to make some sort of hostname allocation in /etc/ethers. The only way to make dnsmasq resolve these hostnames correctly is the use of /etc/hosts, which cannot be read by dnsmasq until others are given read permission to it.
