Question 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:

dhclient-3.0.1-10_EL3

It should be something simiar to this.

dhclient

thanks,

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?

Fixed in Rawhide, added to list for RHEL4U1.

Off to see if there is a patch.
