[Resolvconf-devel] Bug#651801: resolvconf: /etc/resolv.conf is a broken link after reboot

Package: resolvconf
Version: 1.62
Severity: grave


Every time I reboot the system I have to fix /etc/resolv.conf to have DNS
working again. Since /etc/resolv.conf -> /etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf,
the later is not automatically created at reboot. I see now that this is
actually a symlink to /run which is a tmpfs.
