Description David Woodhouse 2005-04-29 07:35:21 UTC
While NetworkManager is running, dhclient on other interfaces fails:

       Listening on LPF/bnep0/00:0d:93:05:4a:3e
       Sending on   LPF/bnep0/00:0d:93:05:4a:3e
       Can't bind to dhcp address: Address already in use
       Please make sure there is no other dhcp server
       running and that there's no entry for dhcp or
       bootp in /etc/inetd.conf.   

NetworkManager should bind to the specific device which it wants to listen on,
in the same way that dhclient presumably does.

Comment 1 David Woodhouse 2005-04-29 07:39:51 UTC
(Alternatively, if NetworkManager were to manage the Bluetooth networking for me
so I don't have to bring it up manually with 'ifup bnep0', that would be
acceptable too :)


Comment 2 Dan Williams 2005-04-29 11:34:52 UTC
Hmm, it should be binding to a specific device, it should only bind to the
device that its done DHCP on.  Other devices have no open sockets on them for
DHCP, or should not...  probably a bug.

Comment 3 Dan Williams 2005-04-29 11:35:27 UTC
Note that right now I'm reworking the connection code to use dhcdbd+dhclient
anyway, so the internal DHCP client will go away quite soon (but not for FC4).

Comment 4 David Woodhouse 2005-06-30 09:26:46 UTC
Still happening in FC4 release. It's easy to trigger.... just let NetworkManager
run and then try to bring up some other interface... like 'ifup bnep0'...

Comment 5 David Woodhouse 2005-10-09 20:25:36 UTC
This is still causing dhcp to fail on FC4.

Comment 6 Dan Williams 2007-11-01 02:48:18 UTC
way old, fixed in FC5 I'm pretty sure (with dhcdbd)
