Description Alan Olsen 2008-04-07 16:45:09 EDT
Description of problem: If /etc/dhclient.conf or /etc/dhclient-wlan0.conf is missing, my wireless connection cannot get an ip address from dhcp. If I use touch to create both of those files, it works. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 4.0.0-14 How reproducible: I have reproduced it multiple times on my x86_64 laptop with b43 chipset and 4.x firmware. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Try to connect with wireless and dhcp 2. touch /etc/dhclient.conf /etc/dhclient-wlan0.conf 3. Try to connect and it works Actual results: It needs those files to exist to get a dhcp addess on my wireless card. Expected results: It should not need those files. Additional info: I have no clue what causes this. I have tried it multiple times with the same results. It is very weird. eth0 connects fine with dhcp.

I cannot reproduce this on the final F-9 release or on rawhide. If you can provide more details about exactly how you are invoking dhclient and confirm that the bug is still happening in the F-9 final release, please reopen the bug and provide that information. Thanks.
