Description Richard Highness 2000-02-24 22:30:37 UTC
I am running RH 6.1 on a Toshiba Tecra 520CDT (notebook) using a 3c574
10/100 pcmcia card.  After installation, I configured the networking (via
netconfig) to use a DHCP server on our NT network.

After pump gets an IP address, the system becomes rather sluggish.
running top I can see that pump is using between 72.9 and 93.0% of the cpu
cycles. Trying to reboot causes the machine to hang when trying to
shutdown the eth0 interface.

Upgrading to the Rawhide version (0.7.6-1) seems to help, but using the
version that ships on CD doesn't work.

Doing a /sbin/pump -i eth0 --status also shows that the renewal/expiration
date to be 01/01/70.  Is this intentional?
