I'm running Etch. My resolv.conf starts with the line:

a file using vim. What is the file that is the
authoritative source of nameserver addresses?

I found this:

but couldn't tell from a quick read where those configs were
supposed to go. Most of the way down the page it referes to DNS

I don't use NM, so I leave implementing it up to you ;)

Or, the OP could get rid of NM and perhaps install the resolvconf
package (that takes resolvconf hints from /etc/network/interfaces
and ppp).


Perhaps I didn't understand everything, but I decided I didn't need
resolvconf. I chose, instead, to use resolv.conf and to configure
everything myself.

I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of the freedom
of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power
than by violent and sudden usurpations.
