Description Toralf 2002-01-03 08:00:50 EST
Description of Problem:
To make a long story short, I think line 77 of /sbin/ifdown should be
changed from
		kill `cat /var/run/dhcpcd-${DEVICE}.pid`
		kill -HUP `cat /var/run/dhcpcd-${DEVICE}.pid`

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Toralf 2002-04-18 08:39:56 EDT
Note that the signal handling has changed somewhat in dhcpcd-1.3.21, so SIGHUP
may no longer be necessary on normal reboot. I guess you should review the
sources code in order to figure out what to do.

See bug 46942 for the reasoning here.
