Description Chris Yeo 1999-03-15 15:03:09 EST
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
for eth0...
Mar 14 20:58:31 CS490542-A pumpd[198]: starting at Sun Mar
14 20:58:31 1999
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

for pump:

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.

Erik ?
Comment 2 witten 1999-03-19 14:16:59 EST
pump is also non-functional in starbuck. starbuck erases dhcpcd upon
installation (during its "obsolete packages" sweep).
Comment 3 Erik Troan 1999-03-31 15:29:59 EST
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.
