If ISDN router (CISCO 760 series) is not on, the message was something like "

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2003-03-20 16:39:08 EST
dhclient is getting SIGFPE for some reason. Reassigning.
Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2003-04-07 19:46:17 EDT
Could you send me the contents of /var/lib/dhcp/dhclient-eth0.leases 
and
 /etc/dhclient-eth0.conf
Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2003-08-01 16:41:21 EDT
Going through and cleaning up old bug reports.  Does this problem still exist or
can I close it?  No response will be taken as an affirmative.
