Description Daniel Wolstenholme 2000-12-29 16:00:38 EST
Enhancement Request:
I use a laptop with RH6.2, with APM and a Cardbus ethernet card using DHCP via pump.  Frequently, I move the laptop from one location at work to another, or home, and in between suspend the laptop using apm -s.  Of course, when I resume, I'm plugged into a different ethernet connection which can even be on a different subnet.  You should add functionality to your /etc/sysconfig/apm-scripts/apmscript script so that, if the machine is using DHCP, it shuts down the ethernet connection, and upon resuming, restarts the connection so it can get a new IP address automatically.

I can do this myself of course, but it seems like a good enhancement to make default behavior for all laptop users.
