by adding -R to the dhcpcd command you are telling it not to update the /etc/resolv.conf file
you can find out lots more about the dhcpcd command by running "man dhcpcd" in a terminal
You can also do the same for most linux commands

here is my /etc/resolv.conf file
Code: [Select]
search xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
nameserver 212.72.130.20
nameserver 208.67.222.222
nameserver 208.67.220.220

but after slapt-get --update all I get is
Code: [Select]
root:# slapt-get --update
Retrieving package data [ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/vectorlinux/veclinux-5.8/packages/]...Failed to download: couldn't resolve host name
Sources failed to download, correct sources and rerun --update

should I remove 'nameserver 208.67.220.220'?

p.s. I'm on corporate LAN with proxy

here is my resolv.config:
Code: [Select]
# Generated by dhcpcd for interface eth0
nameserver  208.67.222.222
search gateway.2wire.net
nameserver 192.168.1.254
you may try this one, but save your current one in case of troubles.

ps.

The difference between your old resolv.config file and the new one is nameserver  208.67.222.222 which already is on my file. So I think your file won't work with my network :(
Beside that nameserver 192.168.1.254 shows that you might be on corporate LAN too and you have "internal" nameserver serving your network. It is useless for my situation.

Will it work if I replace that string after search with IP address for my network's proxy?

I think I'll have to play with it.

Actualy It is not exactly 'my' resolv.config...
I took it from previous page and inserted instead of my old one...
And it works!!! So I think you could try to do the same.
I am connected through 2wire router.

ps.
What is LAN means???
I am sorry for my lack of knowledge...

Local Area Network - simply a network at home, office or wherever :)

I don't get it. It's not your resolv.conf but it still works on your machine?

I just replaced my old resolv.conf by that code.
