Re: User mode networking with slirp on MacOs, setting host DNS server?

I noticed this:
So maybe slirp doesn't do DNS in quite the way I expect on MacOs.

In any case I couldn't figure out how to make changes to slirp and compile them
into a new Qemu, I put a compile error into a file in the slirp
directory and re-ran
the top-level make and it didn't fail.  I was going to just change the
string to /usr/local/etc/resolv.conf and put my alternate address in
there but I haven't
figured out how to do that even.
