Hello everybody,

way when I
do an 'ifup eth0' resolvconf should automatically add the two nameservers to /etc/resolv.conf
I'm not familiar with the dns-nameservers directive, but perhaps it is intended to indicate a selection of entries in /etc/resolv.conf rather than actively creating the entries.

I could be wrong, but as far as I know, the dns-nameservers is not a valid declaration for /etc/network/interfaces, at least I couldn't find it in the interfaces manpage. If the nameserver addresses are static, you don't need the resolvconf package. All you have to do is set up /etc/resolv.conf.
