/etc/resolv.conf keeps resetting

I set up my /etc/resolv.conf file with some custom info but whenever I restart the computer, it resets to other information. How can I stop this from happening.

You need to add the -R switch to the dhcpcd startup. Usually this is a file in /etc/rc.d/- in Slackware it is /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1- check your distro's documentation. The -R switch tells dhcpcd to save the current /etc/resolv.conf and not overwrite it.

Good Luck
