Believe it or not, but I just saw something similar on test7 while
reading linux-kernel with Mutt. A recent message to linux-kernel from
Daniel Philips got partly zeroed out, and partly tangled up with a
message from the debian-user mailing lists. This message had a very
long From: line. Here's the weird message:

Ah, I'm glad I stumbled on this message because I was just getting
ready to make an argument about why setting ->i_size shouldn't be done
in vmtruncate, at least not before the fs-specific truncate is done.
OK, I'll summarize here anyway: as it stands, a valuable piece of
information - the previous size of the file - is getting stepped on
just before inode->i_op->truncate(inode) gets called. This leads to
some messy posturing if you need to know the old size before going to
the new size.

The clean solution would be:

inode->i_op->truncate(inode, offset);

if there is no /etc/resolv.conf then you can create it.

debian prompts for DNS settings during install but if whoever installed
it did not enter them i imagine it wouldn't create a resolv.conf.

you can (as root) do:

echo "nameserver IP_OF_NAMESERVER" >/etc/resolv.conf

to create a basic resolv.conf
