dhcpcd getting IP, but not getting ns info
I'm running SuSE 9.2. This problem existed, for me, with SuSE 9.1 and 9.0. I have also had it with a few other distros.
The problem is dhcpcd. I have a wired cardbus nic card in a laptop. The card is typically plugged in before I fire the machine up. When the machine starts, it powers the nic, and dhcpcd seems to run as expected.
However, dhcpcd does not properly pick up the name server information (DNS) from the DHCP server. It picks up IP and subnet mask just fine. Depending on where I'm at, this DHCP server may be a Linksys "DSL Router" or ISC's DHCP server. The results are the same either way.
Once the machine is up, and I realize the DNS information isn't there, I do 'killproc dhcpcd' and then 'dhcpcd eth1' and it picks up the DNS information properly. I don't get why its doing that.
I prefer ISC's DHClient over dhcpcd, but I've never got dhclient working with SuSE's automatic if-scripts (at boot, or at hotplug). Right now, though... I just want something that works.
