    dnsmasq.conf.add without custom firmware?

    Hi all, I'm really close to getting PXE boot server working on my RT-AC88U but need to be able to add further customization options to dnsmasq. I think Merlin's ability to add custom options would work, but I really don't want to install a custom firmware just to add less than a half a dozen...

    How to see dnsmasq cache contents

    Is there an easy way to view the contents of the dnsmasq cache? The only thing I've found so far is that dnsmasq can be started with the `--log-queries` option, and then sent SIGUSR1 to dump the cache to syslog. Do I need to use a services-start user script to start dnsmasq with this option...
