[maemo-developers] cannot resolve repository

Actually what you could/should do, is as follows:

1) Install dnsmasq on your real host. Defaults should be ok, no need to
mess with your real host resolv.conf. Dnsmasq will read that and update
it's own internals when/if necessary automatically. Also, if using
Debian/Ubuntu, you don't need to touch dnsmasq default setup. It will
work out of the box.

2) Modify the /etc/resolv.conf in your sbox targets to read:

This way sbox name resolution will use the dnsmasq that is running on
your real host, and you'll never have to touch your sbox resolv.conf again.

Very useful when using the machine in dhcp environments and/or traveling
