Openresolv is a resolvconf implementation, i.e. a resolv.conf management framework.


Install the openresolv package.


Openresolv provides resolvconf(8) and is configured in /etc/resolvconf.conf. See resolvconf.conf(5) for supported options.

Running resolvconf -u will generate /etc/resolv.conf.

Openresolv can additionally be configured to pass DNS server addresses to unbound, dnsmasq, BIND and pdnsd resolvers. See the official documentation for instructions.

Tips and tricks

Defining multiple values for options

The man page does not mention it, but to define multiple values, for options that support it (e.g. name-servers, resolv_conf_options etc.) in /etc/resolvconf.conf, you need to write them space separated inside quotes. E.g.:

resolv_conf_options="edns0 single-request"
