When I have installed Maemo-4.1 SDK on my Gentoo Linux desktop, I found out that name resolving isn't working. Even when I adjust /etc/resolv.conf in the scratchbox I couldn't get dns to work.
The solution is simple. There is another copy of resolv.conf which used for name resolving purposes. It is in the /scratchbox/etc/resolv.conf. But I can edit and save this file only from host system.
