/etc/resolv.conf is a file that holds the configuration for the
local resolution of domain names.
Normally this file is either static or maintained by a local
normally a DHCP daemon.
But what happens if more than one thing wants to control the file?
Say you have wired and wireless interfaces to different
subnets and run a
VPN or two on top of that,
how do you say which one controls the file?
It’s also not as easy as just adding and removing the
nameservers each client knows about
as different clients could add the same nameservers.
the middleman between the network configuration services and
resolvconf itself is just a script that stores, removes and lists a
full resolv.conf generated for the interface.
It then calls all the helper scripts it knows about so it can configure the
/etc/resolv.conf and optionally any local nameservers other than libc.
Out of the box,
openresolv will just support the libc resolver and needs to be
configured for any other resolvers.
