Name resolution with Networkmanager


I am running Archlinux-ARM Version 5.4.40-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT on a Raspberry Pi and i seem to have issues with name resolution. Sometimes it takes very long to resolve a name, sometimes it only works on a second attempt and sometimes it fails.

I recently tried to get networking mostly to be managed by NetworkManager. So the only "networking-relevant" services actively running are

iptables.service
NetworkManager.service
systemd-resolved.service
wpa-supplicant.service

I don't know how to set up dns-resolution properly. I can either edit dns-settings via 'nmtui' respectively 'nmcli', wich are currently set to 'Automatic' or i can use resolvectl. /etc/systemd/resolved.conf currently points to my gateway/isp-router and 8.8.8.8 as fallback server, along with the Options 'LLMNR', 'DNSSec' and 'DNSStubListener' set to 'no'.
Does NetworkManager rely on systemd-resolved and if so what would be the proper settings? Can nameresolution also be managed by NetworkManager only?

Edit: i'm sorry i was so caught up with the issue that i completely forgot about the archlinux.org wiki-page. It gives clear instructions on the NetworkManager-site. I'll mark this thread as solved as soon as i figured this out.

Please __disable__ the last two - networkmanager should take care of everything.

Once again: if you use NetworkManager, use NetworkManager.

No.

No.

Wait a second. It says here that NetworkManager can be (or has to be?) configured to use systemd-resovled respectively dnsmasq. Doesn't that imply that the service has to be up and running (as it says in the link)?

Anyway, thanks for your time

You can repackage Network Manager to use openresolv. Check the Wiki regarding openresolv vs systemd-resolved.
Here is a build for using openresolv, this build does other things too like disable bluetooth and removes cloud and might not work for wifi (meant for hardwired network):

It took me a while to figure this out. After disabling systemd-resolved.service and removing the link /etc/resolv.conf created by systemd-resolved Networkmanager configured with dnsmasq created /etc/resolv.conf properly and name resolution works well.
