The file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 is redhat
specific (possibly also suse).

If you have defined your interface as static, why have you got
resolvconf installed? Remove it (ie purge it), then make sure
/etc/resolv.conf is not a symlink and then edit that file to
your liking. Or better yet, defined them in /etc/network/interfaces.
