[Resolvconf-devel] Bug#597562: resolvconf reorders nameserver entries when using networkmanager

Package: resolvconf
Version: 1.46
Severity: normal

When there are multiple internet connections at the same time, the first nameserver
in resolv.conf should be the one associated with the internet connection of the
primary default route. If this is not always followed dns lookups may fail.

network manager sends the nameserver entries in a specific order to resolvconf, but
they get rearranged by resolvconf before they are written into /etc/resolv.conf.

See https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=629258 for the original bug report
to network manager.
