need information for fixed IPs

when this is set in rc.conf I think that require :

{ echo "nameserver 127.0.0.1"; grep -v "^#" /etc/resolv.conf | head -2; } > /tmp/resolv.conf

then backup /etc/resolv.conf and last :

mv /tmp/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf

Force DNS cache persistence?

I've noticed that the DNS cache expires very quickly (less than 60 seconds) for many domains thereby defeating the purpose of caching it in the first place. Is there a way to force entries to last longer? Neounk (talk) 01:30, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

Dnsmasq and Pidgin/Gtalk

Using dnsmasq for dns caching seems to break gtalk on pidgin. Editing /etc/dhcpcd.conf and adding option 'domainneed' '1' solves the issue on my machine.

if others verify the issue and fix, maybe consider for addition to the wiki?
