Description David Sainty 2001-08-29 14:58:35 EDT
Description of Problem:
Either remove a 16bit PC card or use "ifdown eth<x>" where you have more
than one interface using dhcpcd.  (This was not an issue w/ pump.)


-               killall dhcpcd
+               dhcpcd -k ${DEVICE}

^^^ this fixes the problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:

Actual Results:
All interfaces using dhcpcd are taken down, not just one.

Expected Results:
Only the relevant interface should be taken down, not every interface that
happens to use dhcpcd.
Comment 1 David Sainty 2001-08-29 18:56:11 EDT
Fix is to use:

kill `cat /var/run/dhcpcd-${DEVICE}.pid`
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2001-08-29 22:24:50 EDT
