dhcp is greyed out
OK, maybe this is my mistake, during the installation I selected "static IP". Now I would like to chage to dhcp, but when I go to network configuration the dhcp options are dimmed. It can't be possible that I have to reinstall just to switch on dhcp, can it?
In my research, I seem to have found that this might be a bug. Is there a workaround that would preclude a complete reinstall. I'm sure it's probably obvious, but I'm new to the Linux thing, pardon my newbyness.
Thanks in advance.
The dhcp client is most likely not installed. I don't have fedora in front of me right now, but the RHEL 3.0 package is:
It should be something simiar to this.
I ran a search and found dhclient and dhclient-script in /sbin.
There is a sample dhclient shell script in docs
There are several dhclient .gz files in /usr/share/man
Any chance that means that it's installed but not working?
installed the dhclient rpm, didn't work.
installed the dhclient 3.0.1-40.
DHCP is still greyed out.
Fixed in Rawhide, added to list for RHEL4U1.
Off to see if there is a patch.
More dhcp issues.
