[Dnsmasq-discuss] v2.26 on SuSE 8.1 almost working! (I think)...

...but something is a bit off (no pun intended).

I compiled the source on a i386 (Pentium 200 mhz) running SuSE 8.1 [I  
know, I need to upgrade].
compiling seemed to go fine with no errors that I saw.

The system is multihomed with eth0 connected to the cable modem and  
getting it's IP via DHCP from the ISP.
eth1 is connected to my household lan (192.168.1.10 is it's address  
and the machines at my house are
192.168.1.x).

Pretty standard stuff and exactly what dnsmasq seems to be intended for.

dnsmasq seems to start fine but here is it's output when I attempt to  
access seti.org from dig from a client machine that
I changed the DNS IP to 192.168.1.10.  The name servers it is finding  
in resolv.conf are good.  If I dig to either of them
directly then the query works fine.  I am not using a dnsmasq.conf file.

(there are some IPv6 addressed in the /etc/hosts that is complaining  
about - I'm not worried about those)

I couldn't see how to get any further output to help with  
troubleshooting but will certainly follow any guidance you want to give.

Thanks!

David.
