Description elsen 1999-11-22 10:21:57 UTC
- 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
on boot?

Comment 2 elsen 1999-11-23 07:48:59 UTC
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.

          Best Regards,

Could you add this to syslog.conf:

	*.debug                                                 /var/log/debug

restart syslog, run pump, and send me that file along with your
/var/log/messages output after you kill pump?

provided info through email.

Comment 6 Erik Troan 2000-02-24 18:15:59 UTC
What lease time are you getting? Running pump --status right after "pump"
should give you this info.

Comment 7 Erik Troan 2000-09-29 16:30:13 UTC
Fixed in recent versions of pump.
