There are 2 problems I experienced.
1) pump got an ip address from the dhcp server that I run
on my machine at home. This is not where it should have
gotten the dhcp address from.
2) pump couldn't get an ip address from my @Home cablemodem
connection. The following logs messages were in
Mar 14 20:58:31 CS490542-A ifup: Determing IP information
Mar 14 20:58:31 CS490542-A pumpd: starting at Sun Mar

Mar 14 20:59:01 CS490542-A ifup: Operation failed.
Mar 14 20:59:01 CS490542-A ifup: failed.
When I use dhcpcd, I call it like this:
dhcpcd -h CS490542-A eth0
pump -i eth0
I am running kernel 2.2.3 and have updated most (if not
all) of the important packages for Rawhide, including
initscripts, sysvinit, development stuff.
pump is also non-functional in starbuck. starbuck erases dhcpcd upon
installation (during its "obsolete packages" sweep).
pump 0.3 should work much better, and will be in the next starbuck
release (this week). Please reopen this if it's still an issue.
