I thought you just put in your dnsmasq.conf:


Where XXX is the string you want to appear in your /etc/resolv.conf after "search"

# cat /etc/resolv.conf 
; generated by /sbin/dhclient-script
search XXX
nameserver x.x.x.x

So you should be able to make your XXX = "domain1.tld sub.domain2.tld whatever.tld"
