RH 6.1 installed system keeps sending bootp messages (pump)
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:53 EDT
- After installation of a DELL PC with RH6.1 with
NFS - kickstart method the system keeps sending bootp
messages continuously using the "pump" process.
How can I stop this ?
I can kill pump of course, but I would like a more
fundamental solution. I can see that for instance /etc/pump.conf
is not created by default on the system,
Thanks for your time.

Is pump configuring your device properly? Does the flooding start immediately
No , the flooding does not start immediately on boot
but after the system is fully up; e.g. after KDE or GNOME
has been launched.
Manual tests with killing and launching pump seems to indicate
that a normal bootp sequence occurs upon invoking pump
then after half a minute or so the flooding starts.
Killing pump again resolves the problem.
For your information ;following a suggestion from someone
in Dejanews I got my problem solved by replacing by using dhcpcd
instead of pump in the /sbin/ifup script.
Could you add this to syslog.conf:
restart syslog, run pump, and send me that file along with your
/var/log/messages output after you kill pump?
provided info through email.
What lease time are you getting? Running pump --status right after "pump"
should give you this info.
Fixed in recent versions of pump.
