Description Kevin Fenzi 2013-04-03 17:37:05 UTC
I'm seeing these messages from some f18 arm installs:

 Apr  3 17:31:05 arm02-builder12.arm.fedoraproject.org dhclient[771]: DHCPREQUEST on eth0 to 10.5.126.41 port 67 (xid=0x2bd0fbe4)
Apr  3 17:31:05 arm02-builder12.arm.fedoraproject.org dhclient[771]: send_packet: Operation not permitted
Apr  3 17:31:05 arm02-builder12.arm.fedoraproject.org dhclient[771]: dhclient.c:2663: Failed to send 300 byte long packet over fallback interface.

over and over again. 

dhclient-4.2.5-7.fc18.armv7hl

Happy to gather more info or try debugging.

Argh. Looks like this was some overly restrictive firewall rules... :( 

Sorry for the noise.
