Re: resolv gets wacked after reboots

Package: resolvconf
Version: 1.29
Severity: important

Yes, there is a bug in resolvconf's removal logic.  The problem
is that /etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf resides on a volatile
filesystem and is therefore empty after boot until something
writes to it.  If the resolvconf package is removed then the
resolvconf program no longer updates the file.  But the symlink
/etc/resolv.conf -> /etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf is only
deleted if the resolvconf package is _purged_.

Purging resolvconf should fix the user's problem.

The resolvconf package should be changed so that the symlink
is deleted on package removal.
