[Resolvconf-devel] Bug#513445: option to disable getting nameservers from DHCP

Package: resolvconf
Version: 1.43
Severity: wishlist

Every now and then, I am stuck behind a provider like the German
T-Offline or another one run by idiots who fail to keep their DNS
servers working properly. Then, I'd really like to provide my own.
Unfortunately, any dns_nameservers entries in /e/n/i are ranked
after the ones obtained from DHCP. I wish there was a way for me to
prevent resolvconf from reading the DHCP nameservers. Right now, the
only way there is -- it seems -- is to execute resolvconf -d $IFACE
in a ifupdown down hook, since the $IF_* variables from /e/n/i are
not passed on to the DHCP hook scripts.
