how to uninstall dhcpcd


One of my worst mistakes is to install dhcpcd.. i don't even use it. And now its giving me hell.

It always stays there during booting for atleast 2 minutes total, just trying to get through dhclient and dhcpcd. I couldnt figure out how the heck you can get rid of them from /etc/rc.d/

When i did a search, i found the commands in /etc/sysconfig/network-devices/services/
So i changed their permisions so that they don't become executables thinking that should do the trick. Now not only do i still get problems in boot time, but it complains that the binaries are not found

How on earth can get rid of dhcp and dhcpcd ?

Thanks.

you get rid of them by deleting them... this IS lfs right? you've compiled your own gcc etc... and you're stuck here? maybe i'm missing something. if you want to ensure you get rid of everything and you've no longer got the source, i'd suggest reinstalling it from source and them using "make uninstall" afterwards to remove all the files again.

Sorry, i might have confused you a bit..

I've compiled all of LFS and BLFS ages ago. I have a ready built system, but during my compilation, i installed (compiled) dhcpcd and dhclient from BLFS, and now everytime i boot, it gives me trouble with them...

I just want to get rid of them from the bootscripts or the boot... I know i can do that in slackware by just making the /etc/rc.d/rc.* non-executable. But LFS's bootscripts are slightly different, so i couldnt find out how.


EDIT: SOLVED
=========
set ONBOOT="no" in
/etc/sysconfig/network-devices/ifconfig.eth0/dhclient and dhcpcd
