iwd and DNS (was: Re: Attempting a VERY minimal install (using --no-install-recommends ;))

Thin air and deep waters is where I'm at.

I'm trying to set up the "tui" [text-based user interface] for the [Teres debian laptop].

I think the tui is designed to be quite minimal (hence I post in this thread).

I am surprised that I got iwd to connect to MY_OWN_WIFI:
        iwctl station wlan0 get-networks
        iwctl station wlan0 connect MY_OWN_WIFI

by copying psk file MY_OWN_WIFI.psk from another machine and then by putting it into /var/lib/iwd/ on the Teres debian laptop.

But it seems I have no DNS resolution (I can use the links-browser to go to web pages by IP numbers, but not by domain names).

I cannot do apt update. I get a "temporary failure resolving 'deb.debian.org'".

I'm not sure what exactly I'm asking for here. I guess I need the IP number of a DNS-server that some program can ask where deb.debian.org is located.

Grateful for hints.

Best regards.
