Description rebel 1999-04-07 11:54:56 EDT
The automatic configuring of a network through the BOOTP
doesn't work. I tried the latest boot image.

The same situation is after installation. That should be
probably the pump package issue, but I can't find the "pump"
in components list.
Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-04-07 18:36:59 EDT
erik, I figure this has been fixed, correct?
Comment 2 Matt Wilson 1999-04-17 17:06:59 EDT
what's the output of "rpm -q pump"
Comment 3 rebel 1999-04-20 10:25:59 EDT
The latest pump (0.5) is functinal. Only when the BOOTP protocol is
used it doesn't need to stay running forever.
Comment 4 Matt Wilson 1999-04-27 11:15:59 EDT
pump shouldn't fork for bootp replies, right?  but I guess it's hard
to handle that case.
Comment 5 rebel 1999-05-06 04:57:59 EDT
I think it should be enough if pump could have a parameter
(--nodaemon) to stop after the first init.

Also is there any way to add another data to resolv.conf, such as
additional searches, automatically?
Comment 6 Erik Troan 1999-06-01 15:29:59 EDT
pump intentionally hides the differences between bootp and dhcp; as
part of this it always goes into daemon mode. This doesn't hurt
anything, and makes things a bit easier on our scripts. I would
welcome a patch for a --nodaemon option.

More flexible /etc/resolv.conf generation is on the todo list.
