Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 52541
dhcpcd doesn't appear to work with tr0
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:00 EDT
Description of Problem:
Cofigure ifcfg-tr0 by hand and set the boot protocol to "dhcp". Run ifup
tr0 and dhcp replys with: dhcpStart: Interface tr0 is not Ethernet or 802.2
Token Ring. Static IP works fine.
dhcp for tr0 previously worked in 7.1 but I do not recall if it was using
pump or dhcpcd packages. (Which was the default install???)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I was able to get pump-0.8.11-6 from the beta site and test again with tr0 and dhcp.
Using pump tr0 works when set to use dhcp. Using dhcpcd tr0 does not work
properly. (See previous error message).
Is there a reson that dhcpcd has replaced pump in 7.2 or is it possible to
install both pump and dhcpcd and have tr0 interface default to pump while dhcpcd
is used for all other interfaces as it is now?
This could be quick hack in the ifup / ifdown scripts to read the existing TYPE
var in ifcfg-trX and if it matches 'Token Ring' to use pump. All other scripts
would use dhcpcd.
Still waiting on RH for test case fixes to this bug.
Is there a problem with just only installing pump on the affected machines?
Problem is an out of box issue. it would be easy to install pump and dhcpcd and
use one or the other based on the interface (trX vs ethX). That said, closing
this 7.2 bug. Will investigate under skipjack public beta and reopen if needed.
