Ideally, DNS nameserver configuration should be transparent. The DHCP client should indicate the nameservers it has found, and the system uses them - and that's what openresolv does.

It looks like adding openresolv should be easy - it's posix shell and userland compliant, and well maintained.

Using resolv conf would make the instructions in http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/USB_Networking a little easier, and it would make wifi, bluetooth, and cellular networking feasible.

  • Status changed from new to closed

using resolvconf in ASU (connman needs it)... should mark this as invalid i guess :)
