It looks for DHCP clients in the following order:
I just installed dhcpcd 1:1.3.22pl4-10 and dpkg -s reports:
Conflicts: dhcpcd-sv, dhcp-client
so I don't see how you could have both dhcpcd and dhcp-client
(or any other DHCP client that Provides dhcp-client) installed.
When one installs tasks does tasksel knock out uninstallable items
from the list and proceed? If so then that would explain how you
ended up with resolvconf but not dhcpcd.
I really should make resolvconf Conflict with dhcp-client
(<= 3.0.1betaRC4-1) until such time as resolvconf support is added
to dhcp-client. This is a bug in the resolvconf package. However,
the question remains: Should I add this Conflict or should I work
toward getting resolvconf support into dhcp-client? If debootstrap
is going to start installing dhcp3-client then I'll do the former.
If not then I'll do the latter, provided the maintainers of
dhcp-client agree to apply a patch.
