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"
name_servers=" fd7b:d0bd:7a6e::1"
