[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: devuan-installer
Version: 3.1.1

When I boot the devuan live system[1] it ignores the DNS servers
provided by DHCP and uses google servers instead. The expected
behavior is for the system to use DNS servers provided by DHCP instead
of pinging google.

# dhclient eth0
from the live system sets the DNS servers to those provided by DHCP,
as expected.

Here's a transcript demonstratig the values embedded in the iso:
# mount devuan_beowulf_3.1.1_amd64_desktop-live.iso /mnt/iso
# mount /mnt/iso/live/filesystem.squashfs /mnt/squashfs
# cat /mnt/squashfs/etc/resolv.conf
## google's nameservers

The system configures IP, route, etc. from DHCP as expected.
