I had the same problem until I put:
# REQUIRE: SERVERS cleanvar ppp-user
in /etc/rc.d/named script, which means that named won't start until the
ppp -ddial adsl command, which is called by in /etc/rc.d/ppp-user, is
finished. By then, DNS and default route will be established.
I also put:
# PROVIDE: ppp-user
Sorry for writing you directly but I don't know why, the freebsd-questions
list (in fact, all freebsd lists i'm subscribed to) is refusing my posts. Not
even the list manager/owner gets them. If you would be so kind to forward
this to them, I'd be very greatful. Maybe they could find out why so I could
take action to try remedy what is causing the refusals of my e-mail.
Thanks and Best wishes,
FreeBSD since version 2.2.8 [not Pro-Audio.... YET!!] (99,7% winedows FREE)
