Gentoo dhcpcd bootime lockup
Hello, I am running Gentoo kernel 2.6 and I have dhcpcd installed. My problem is that if I disconnect the cat 5 from the back the system wont boot it just attempts to acquire an IP indefinitely! I tried to add the line :
fallback_eth0( "apipa" )
to /etc/conf.d/net, but this didn't solve the problem. Does anyone know how to assign a
169.XXX.XXX.XXX IP upon dhcpcd failing? or at least how it will just fail and get over it and move on with life. Anyway thanks in advance to all who reply.
