[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] apt-get 'could not resolve hostname' again

However, the issue was resolved by correcting the /etc/resolv.conf file
inside scratchbox. I assume this is the file that the scratchbox chroot
shell (or, more importantly, glibc) in the given target thinks
is /etc/resolv.conf. Mine is correct for my setup, yet I have the exact
same symptoms described in that thread of almost a year ago--apt-get
cannot resolve hostnames, yet other tools like wget seem fine.

This is Scratchbox 1.0 R4 and the Maemo 3.0 SDK ARMEL target installed
via the maemo 3.0 scripts on repository.maemo.org.
