Description Brian "netdragon" Bober 2002-06-07 02:34:40 EDT
Description of Problem:
Add ability to set a delay period for dhcpcd for the /sbin/ifup script

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


I altered the /sbin/ifup file to allow you to add DHCP_CLIENT_TIMEOUT to any 
ifcfg-eth* file (such as /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

Can you please build this into the Redhat distribution (and possibly add this 
to the kernel for all distributions)? (I'm not entirely sure if its 100% 
correctly done, but it works for me ;-)

excerpt /sbin/ifup

if [ -n "${DYNCONFIG}" ]; then
# Brian Bober
# Hacked to add ability for DHCP_CLIENT_TIMEOUT (in seconds)
# variable to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth* scripts
if [ -n "${DHCP_CLIENT_TIMEOUT}" ]; then
# End Hack
if [ -n "${DHCP_HOSTNAME}" ]; then
if [ -n "${NEEDHOSTNAME}" ]; then
PUMPARGS="${PUMPARGS} --lookup-hostname"
Comment 1 Brian "netdragon" Bober 2002-06-07 02:37:27 EDT
By delay, I meant timeout
