Maybe the maintainer can > help out here? wicd can use a dhcp client (dhcpcd, pump, dhclient, udhcpc, "automatic"), but doesn't necessarily have to. (My settings are in "automatic" right now.) But there are always some cases where /etc/resolv.conf aren't normally overwritten (and that's not something confined to wicd). The warning about /etc/resolv.conf being replaced by NM is generic so that if a user has this case they can investigate and fix it. -- Chris -- Chris Knadle Chris.Knadle@coredump.us
