You did fill it with the correct data first, did you?
When i removed the resolvconf, i did not purge it.
That's OK, purging should not be necessary.
What to do next?
When you do 'ls -l /etc/resolv.conf', what time/date does it show? Does
it indicate that the file gets overwritten during the boot process?
If all else fails, perhaps you could set up a cronjob that overwrites
resolv.conf with the correct data each minute or so...
Or perhaps you can try removing the write bit from the file's permission
to prevent it from being overwritten.
