Resolvd weird dns issue

I got a weird problem with DNS. Turned out to be a bug in resolvd. I am leaving this here for others. Eventually is also relevant for the developers. This error will appear in the virtualmin check that happens just after the installation. It will say something about a missing in thee DNS servers, instead the address is listed.

Debian 10. Fresh install

sudo rm -f /etc/resolv.conf
sudo ln -s /run/systemd/resolve/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf
OS type and version: REQUIRED
Webmin version: REQUIRED

We’re removing that check in Virtualmin 7. So it will no longer be an issue we care about or confuse users over.

It is used by such an unimportant feature (it allows for site preview to sites that don’t have DNS setup yet, and can also avoid some mail delivery problems in the event of broken DNS), and it causes so much stress in users who don’t understand the message, it just isn’t worth keeping it.
