Hi all, new to dnsmasq and run into a few questions that I can't seem  
to find an answer for....

I'm on OSX Snow Leopard and have installed the latest version via  

First problem, dnsmasq does not start automatically

I have run the following command to install the startup script :

	sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/ 

however that script references a wrapper script that references the  
following non existing file.


I have search for examples of such a file, but can't seem to find  
anything... What need to be in this file? And why wouldn't that be  
included with the macports installation?

I can start dnsmasq manually with

sudo dnsmasq

how would I stop/restart it manually?

Second issue :
	with the default installation macport installation dnsmasq tries to  
load /opt/local/etc/resolv.conf which should be /etc/resolv.conf

so i've uncommented in /opt/local/etc/dnsmasq.conf to override that


anyway could this be automated for macports installations?
