Yesterday I ran across a reference in a mailing list archive to "4 Linux DHCP clients in common use". "4?", I said to myself, "I only know 3, WTF is the 4th?"
I did a variety Gooles, the 1 that worked is:
"linux dhcp clients" dhcpcd dhclient pump
& the 4th is dhcpxd
. Notice that dhc<tab>
will still detect it. So the list, possibly in chronological order, is:
SimplyMEPIS now uses dhclient
Obviously, I have never seen dhcpxd
on a system, since I just heard about it today.
, may be a Mandriva creation.
