Re: Why does resolv.conf keep changing?

is, or what it looks like.  Just make SOME way to configure the system so
that /etc/resolv.conf is never touched in any way by ANYTHING.  Resolvconf
already intercepts all the incoming attempts to modify /etc/resolv.conf
by dhclient et al., right?  That's its entire purpose, right?  So just
give us a way to tell it to intercept those requests and do nothing.

You understand that in most of the cases discussed recently it isn't resolvconf changing resolv.conf, it's the dhcp client? One of the drivers for resolvconf was to have a central place to configure preferences so that people *wouldn't* have to deal with a number of other daemons modifying the resolv.conf file and overwriting each other.
