update-resolv-conf for openSUSE, using SUSE's netconfig with dirty tricks. No need for resolvconf.
#!/bin/bash

# Parses DHCP options from openvpn to update resolv.conf
# To use set as 'up' and 'down' script in your openvpn *.conf:
# up /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf
# down /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf

# Adjusted for openSUSE and its 'netconfig' component

# Omitted the 'DOMAIN' part.

I'm trying to update DNS settings using this or other scripts [even the ones which come with openvpn on opensuse] and I can't.
netconfig won't change the DNSes for me in resolv.conf.
Did you change anything in the NetworkManager configuration?
