Description Matthias Clasen 2006-12-05 00:10:03 EST
Why does it have its own homegrown mainloop implementation anyway,
instead of using glib's mainloop, which doesn't have this flaw ?
Comment 1 David Cantrell 2006-12-05 11:38:08 EST
I have absolutely no idea.  I inherited this project.  But I completely agree
with you that it's silly not to be using glib's mainloop.

I'll get this fixed up.

Thanks.

Comment 3 Fedora Update System 2007-06-18 12:43:12 EDT
dhcdbd-2.7-5.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
Comment 4 William Lovaton 2007-09-08 08:36:00 EDT
is alright for dhcdbd to wakeup every second? is this fixable? I'm seeing this
problem on the latest RAWHIDE as of today.
Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2007-09-08 13:08:15 EDT
not really worth investing much time into this problem for rawhide, where NM 0.7
will soon make dhcdbd unnecessary.
Comment 6 William Lovaton 2007-09-09 13:00:29 EDT
I'm glad to hear that.

Is dhcdbd needed for something else? if not, is it going to be removed from the
distribution??
Comment 7 David Cantrell 2007-09-10 10:45:41 EDT
It's only needed for NetworkManager.  Once NetworkManager is upgraded in Fedora,
dhcdbd will be removed.
