Description John William 2001-07-01 17:24:25 UTC
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...

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
