Permanently set resolv.conf with Slackware 14.1

Good day

I am currently connecting to the internet using wvdial and my 3G modem. Everything is fine. However, every time when starting up my computer I need to edit my DNS settings before I am able to successfully load web pages etc...

root@mypcname:~# cat /etc/resolv.conf 
# Generated by dhcpcd
# /etc/resolv.conf.head can replace this line
# /etc/resolv.conf.tail can replace this line
At this time I am using Google as a quick fix but I would like to permanently set DNS servers of my choice.

Look forward to your replies,

Thanks and have great day further!

You already have the answer in the file... :P

Create a file named /etc/resolv.conf.tail with the line:
And your changes will be persistent..
