Description of problem:
The file /var/lib/dhcp/dhcpd.leases does not exist and must be created by
hand. The file /var/lib/dhcp/dhcp.leases does exist. Thus this looks like a
typo problem.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install roswell
2.execute the command 'dhcpd'

We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.

Comment 2 Keith Hudson 2001-08-18 16:51:39 UTC
To fix the rpm You need to replace the instances of dhcp.leases with 
dhcpd.leases in the dhcp.spec file then build a new rpm. The current one 
touches dhcp.leases instead of dhcpd.leases

Comment 3 Jim Meyer 2001-12-10 18:59:45 UTC
This is also a problem in RH7.1; a backpatch would be appreciated.

Comment 4 Elliot Lee 2001-12-10 19:03:05 UTC
This is fixed in 7.2 - you shouldn't have any problems grabbing the
dhcp-2.0pl5-8 from there and installing it on a 7.1 system.
