Hi Dane,

The 'resolvconf' package is a rather sophisticated framework for
controlling how /etc/resolv.conf is generated, and NetworkManager will
use it if it is installed.

For example, I use it to add a "search mycompany.com" statement to
/etc/resolv.conf that persists when NetworkManager rewrites the file to
change the nameservers.
