Mac Second Life DNS Error FIX

[ Edited ]

Hi !!

I had a lot of Problems on my mac to login into second life . Alwas i got a resolve DNS Error but i have found the solution now after a long time

So anyone who has problems should use this : 

Im using Mac OS X 10.6.8 

It´s seems that the second life client is not using /var/run/resolv.conf   ... its searching the nameserver entrys in /etc/resolv.conf”  and this file is no longer used by os x . So you have to make a symbolic link to  /var/run/resolv.conf

so open a new terminal windows and type 

s -l /etc/resolv.conf

and see if it is a symbolic link or a plain file

 If not  fix it with: 

sudo rm /etc/resolv.conf; sudo ln -s /var/run/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf

 

This should resolve all of your nasty DNS Problem. Now my second life client is working fine under mac os x

 

best regards, 

Gecco11
