Description Matt Domsch 2000-10-05 12:19:09 EDT
dhcpcd uses a directory /etc/dhcpc.  This is correct.
However, the dhcpcd RPM also creates the directory /etc/dhcpcd, with a
single file ( a symoblic link dhcpc -> dhcpc) which is both broken and
useless.  Maybe they meant:
ln -s ../dhcpc dhcpc

In any case, is there any reason to keep the /etc/dhcpcd directory, given
that all files used are put in /etc/dhcpc?
Comment 1 Matt Domsch 2001-02-13 13:46:02 EST
This is still broken in Fisher (Florence Beta 3).
Comment 2 Matt Domsch 2001-03-13 15:46:52 EST
This is fixed in qa0309 at least.
/etc/dhcpcd -> /etc/dhdpc
