Was it a type that you excluded the initial slash (/) from
etc/resolv.conf? resolv.conf is usually just 3 or 4 lines longs, so if
for some strange reason it is missing you can always just create it.
Put in one or two entries such as:
# man resolv.conf
Perhaps resolv.conf missing could be cause to invesitage whether your
install went well, and if other things might be missing as well?
