resolv.conf empty, resolv.conf.netconfig ate the data

Problem: After a reboot, /etc/resolv.conf says just # Generated by NetworkManager and the real data went to /etc/resolv.conf.netconfig. I have both eth0 and wlan0 activated by NM. My setup does not involve dial-up like Seife's.

rcnetwork stop
rm /etc/resolv.conf.netconfig
: > /etc/resolv.conf
rcnetwork start
I wonder if this is a bug. Anyway, hopefully this will help someone. openSUSE 11.2 RC1.

WebYaST Beta 1

We have released Beta 1 of WebYaST. Just to prevent misunderstandings, it is intended for appliances (and Beta 1 is an appliance, a VMX for VirtualBox or VMWare), not for replacing YaST on the desktop.

Download links are in the 0.0.13 status mail, see also the module status and the replies.

I Will Write the Tests Later

I've read A New Look at Test-Driven Development, a 7 page article by Dave Astels. He explains that what matters is to think of specifications (@list.size.should_equal 1) instead of tests (assert_equal @list.size, 1). He wrote RSpec for this and calls it Behavior Driven Development (BDD).
I need to try this out in WebYaST (this, or Shoulda).
