I have been having a rather odd problem with getting the needed dhcp information from my linksys router. I know the dhcp works since it's worked in windows and red hat and the other two machines are working (that don't run Slackware).
When my machine boots up, Slackware's scripts work find and detect my ethernet card, but when it tries to run the dhcpcd executable it spits out a timeout error message (after about a minute) then proceeds with the rest of the startup.
When I first boot into my system, I have no Internet access (since dhcpcd didn't work properly). BUT, if I run dhcpcd after logging in everything works just fine. I tried editing the startup scripts (specifically rc.inetd1), but I still had the same problem. But, if I edit rc.local (which is the last rc script to be called) and execute the dhcpcd client from their, the system works just great.
So, I guess that there is something that is not getting called before the dhcpcd line in /etc/rc.d/rc.inetd. Is there some program that dhcpcd depends on to run?
Do you have an idea?
