[Resolvconf-devel] Bug#475306: resolvconf doesn't record information from NetworkManager about DNS servers

Package: resolvconf
Version: 1.39
Severity: important

I have dnsmasq installed, so my /etc/resolv.conf always lists
as the nameserver.
When I use NetworkManager to connect to VPN (using VPNC), I get a couple
of DNS addresses which are important to access my hostnames behind the
VPN network.
These DNS entries are not captured by resolvconf.

I looked into the following folder:

rrs at learner:/etc/resolvconf/run/interface$ ls
eth1  lo.dnsmasq

The folder has no entry for my tun0 device which is used for VPN
connection. With this not in place, I'm forced to either manually add
the DNS entries to the /etc/resolv.conf file or add the hostnames to my
/etc/hosts file

If I remove resolvconf, NetworkManager is able to update the
/etc/resolv.conf file properly with the VPN Internal DNS records.
