Description Zoltan Kolb 2000-03-03 12:17:24 UTC
DHCP or BOOTP does not work on diskless machines with NFS-mounted
/ partitions. These machines need fixed IP addresses, but it still
makes sense to use DHCP or BOOTP to optain other IP parameters
(nameserver, routers, etc.). Pump seems to unconfigure the interface
before obtaining an IP address for it, and this makes the / filesystem
unaccessible crashing the machine.

Comment 1 Erik Troan 2000-08-04 14:51:13 UTC
While a patch is welcome to fix this (is should be configurable on a
per-interface level
via /etc/pump.conf), I'm not going to add it myself.
