#2060: DNS configuration problems

 After switching to Bionic as our base OS version, there seems to be some
 missconfiguration on the DNS settings of the resulting iso.

 In order to reprocude the issue try:

 1. Boot the upstream lubuntu-18.04-desktop-amd64.iso and try to set the
 network to a static IP. The /etc/resolv.conf file is properly setup to
 point to the DNS servers you have provided.

 2. Boot the osgeo-live-nightly-build34-amd64-3d4bc66.iso and try to set
 the network to static IP. The /etc/resolv.conf file is a symlink to
 /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf but that file does not exist. Instead the file
 /run/systemd/resolve/resolv.conf exists and if you symlink to that path
 everything works fine.
