Hello. I'm used to working with resolvconf in Ubuntu ( ). In few words: this program manage the eventual dynamic updates in /etc/resolv.conf content coming from several origins (network-manager hooks, dhcp clients hooks, dns-nameservers line in /etc/network/interfaces, etc). I've seen in Fedora this program not even exist in repositories. Is there some other program which does (more or less) the same job in Fedora? I thought it was systemd-resolved but from what I've seen, it seems more like a dnsmasq replacement. Correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks a lot!!

What are you trying to accomplish? Change your DNS? search domains? Something else? Resolvconf can be quite troublesome and may not be desirable. Tell us what you want done and we’ll tell you what tools you can use for the job, and maybe suggest which one is right for you.

I only wanted to know if Fedora has some program which could behave like resolvconf does. For academic purposes

I think nm-dispatcher runs when network change , it may help you

rpm -ql NetworkManager | grep dis


Also, you may ask in networkmanager mailing list,
