I highly recommend you guys look at the README in the github repo which states:

> However if you have systemd 229 or newer the better option is to use script from which uses DBus calls instead of creating temporary *.network files.

Which can be found here

Systemd is at 233 right now for me, so it is a much better option to use it instead.

@weirddan455 That's a good call I'll push out a new revision of this to include it

@Ptolom that sounds like a good suggestion but since this package just clones the script from github you should propose the change there. Feel free to push a pull request to: After it's merged when you rebuild this package it will be applied

@jpala hmm, I've never used pacaur before I'm gonna respin this with the missing makedepends, if it's still an issue with pacaur after that let me know and I'll investigate more deeply.

There is a bug in this script which causes DNS leaks.
"resolvconf -a "${dev}.inet"
retains the old nameservers in resolv.conf, leading to dns leaks. I suggest adding the -x flag (for exclusive) to resolvconf to only use the nameservers supplied by openvpn

git should probably be added as a makedepend.

I had issues trying to install this package with pacaur.
$ pacaur -Sy openvpn-update-resolv-conf
This runs without error but the 'update-resolv-conf' script is not copied into /etc/openvpn and I can't see it anyware using find / -name update-resolv-conf.

However, everything worked as expected when I simply downloaded the PKGBUILD and then built it with makepkg.
$ makepkg
$ makepkg -i

Seeing as the PKGBUILD works fine with makepkg, I assume there is some error in the way pacaur is handling it but I'm not sure what it is.
