I'm using dnsmasq on an ADSL router (Speedport W500V with a modified BitSwitcher
firmware). Dnsmasq is used as a dns resolver and a DHCP/DHCPv6 server. RA is done by
radvd, because it is easier to manage the address for a 6to4 auto tunnel with radvd.
The clients don't get an IPv6 address. They got an IPv4 address only. v2.62test3 works fine.
I'm not able to start dnsmasq, because it complains about the user and group of the lease
file. It tries to access /var/lib/misc/dnsmasq.leases and /var/dnsmasq.leases, but
/var/dnsmasq.leases is set in the config file by 'dhcp-leasefile=/var/dnsmasq.leases'
only. The router has the users root:root and nobody:nogroup. v2.62test4 does start.
