Yeah cheers I just found that a restart of the NetworkManager service kills whatever I manually put in resolv.conf
sigh, another abstraction.
anyway, for those interested: i solved this problem by editing my /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and putting an entry in there:
in my case the ip address of my router. yep i could also use the nameservers of my isp or opendns, but i choose not to.
i'm not running a gui, but i'd still solve it the command-line way if i did.
