Description John William 2001-07-01 13:24:25 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98)

Description of problem:
Running pump-0.8.11-1 - if the ethernet connection is down at renewal time 
pump seems to just exit. Earlier versions gave a "no more interfaces under 
management" in /var/log/messages, but I don't get that any more.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put an interface under management by pump
2. Unplug ethernet cable (or other suitable network failure :-)
3. Wait for pump to renew

Actual Results:  Pump just seems to exit and leave the interface down. It 
has be be manually restarted.

Expected Results:  Pump should continue to try to renew the lease rather 
than exiting.

Ive seen similiar behaivhor- I have a DSL connection which sometimes may refuse
to renew the lease if its upstream connection goes down. I dont see pump exit- 
its still running. It just doesnt recover when the network comes back up.

dhcpcd is now the DHCP client of choice in rawhide...
Comment 3 Martijn 2002-02-27 04:53:49 EST
Perhaps the package descriptions should be changed to reflect this. Now dhcpcd sais:

'The dhcpcd package includes a DHCP client, but we
suggest that you instead install the DHCP client included in the pump
package, which provides a faster and simpler DHCP client.'

The pump package (which has been moved to cd2 though) does not mention dhcpcd at
