DNS Servers


How do I set DNS Servers in Gentoo?

I have tried editing resolv.conf from it gets overwritten by dhcpd at every startup.

Any ideas?

This is what a DHCP client is supposed to do. To change this default behavior edit dhcpcd.conf.

I don't have a /etc/dhcpd.conf on my Gentoo machine.

Are there any other locations where I could find it?

All config files are listed in man page. Do 'man your_dhcpclient' to find out. Can't help you further, I'm using static configuration whenever I can and currently have no Gentoo boxes with dhcpcd installed.
