/etc/resolv.conf not updated by dhcp
I am using kubuntu 9.10 64-bit on AMD M500 machine
i removed networkmanager (because i had frequent disconnect) and installed wicd but the /etc/resolv.conf had a comment on top which says that it is to be configured by networkmanager (still)
I put the DNS in there manually and it works
What to put in there so that it uses DHCP ?
Maybe its set to be not written by anyone other than networkmanager ??
No nothing like that, /etc/resolv.conf is just a text file.
Any service or program can make changes to it, which are running with root privileges.
On Ubuntu you can not install Wicd with Gnome Network Manager, that would be automatically removed. while removing the Network Manager it wont remove the comment from the file, its just the old comment, you can remove it manually, and leave the file.
Configure Wicd correctly it will write new DNS entries to file automatically.
