sudo nmgui it up instead of fighting with resolv.conf settings (for stuff other than configuring your corporate domain)
That is all. One hour spent “learning” this. But hey I’m a Linux noob and I’m starting with a bare install for a limited support distribution.
So for future noobs Googling “why can’t I configure my wireless card and network adapter on a bare metal Clear Linux install and set a name server in resolved.d” well - just avoid it.
DNS is automatically in your resolv.conf file so you don’t need it in resolved.d/resolved.conf and
Also… nmgui is super easy for connecting to a wifi network so you don’t need to worry about manual wpa_supplicant configuration stuff.
I mean, DIY is always fun. And it’s a way to familiarize yourself with operating your operating system. But. Automatic is just so much better some days!!
