    You really don't provide *any* useful information for us to help you or
    fix a problem, if there is any. I actually do not think there is a
    problem as static network configuration works fine for me and does show a
    dialog asking for DNS servers to use.

    If you want us to look into this, you should at least provide the
    following information:
    - what architecture you are installing
    - *exactly* what D-I image and installation method you are using (please
    give the full URL of the image you downloaded)
    - some information about your home network and internet connection
    - the exact steps you followed to configure the network
    - the contents of /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/resolv.conf after
    that network configuration

    If you do not provide this info, our only option is to just close your
    report.

    Cheers,

  3. Bug#502261: debian-installer doesn't ask for DNS

    - x86
    - debian-eeepc_20080907.img from http://eeepc.debian.net/images/debia...c_20080907.img from page http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEeePC/HowTo/Install
    - Static IP from provider. Behind a router. To get browsers and things to work the computer needs to have the DNS being 68.105.28.12. In D-I at the 'detect network' stage it writes /etc/resolve.conf and has 68.105.228.13 and68.105.228.14 as the DNS servers, which doesn't work.
    - To configure the network in the install? I hit alt-f2, cd /etc, nano resolve.conf, change the first DNS to the correct url, ctrl-x, y, enter, alt-f1, and it was working then.
    - /etc/network/interfaces
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    allow-hotplug eth0
    iface eth0 inet dhcp

    /etc/resolve.conf
    search gosnelltree.com
    nameserver 68.105.28.12
    nameserver 68.105.228.14

    Your /etc/network/interfaces file says that your network interface is
    configured by DHCP, probably provided by your router. The wrong DNS
    addresses are derived from the DHCP info, so you should fix them in
    the DHCP server, which is probably your router. If that's configured
    by your provider, then ask them to reconfigure it correctly with
    respect to the name server addresses.
