Hello Again,

I downloaded the dhcp-3.0rc7.tar.gz from ftp ftp.nominum.com. I followed the instructions:

1. tar -zxvf dhcp-3.0rc7.tar.gz
2. ./configure
3. make

When I do this I get the following error:

make [2]: *** [libdhcp.a] segmentation fault (core dumping)
make [2]: leaving directory '/home/super/dhcp-3.0rc7/work.linux-2.2/common
make [1]: *** [install] error 1
make [1]: leaving directory '/home/super/dhcp-3.0rc7/work.linux-2.2
make: *** [install] error 2

When I do a ntsysv, I do not see the DHCPD as a choice, assuming that it did not install, I reboot and try again.

I have also tryed to install the rpm, i get:
floating point exception (core dumped)


RedHat 7.0 (Server Install) 2.2

u sure u wanna *serve* DHCP to ppl? I mean, this is not the client u use for *having* cablemodem access to ure ISP with.
if ure sure this is what u want u better try the DHCP server from RH, this is a beta anyway. The RH RPM is called dhcp-2.0-12.i386.rpm, should be on any RH mirror, RPMFind or so.

To start with I agree with UnSpawn - you sure you mean to server addresses? In any case even if you hadn't got the errors it wouldn't have installed and you would need to run
Code:
make install
once the 'make' had finished. Looks like something fell over in quite a major way when you compiled it. Have you read through all the documentation for any things that are know to cause build faults, like specific compilers? Also you say that you had a core dump when processing an RPM - have you had other problems with this system? Other processing falling over on you often - you might have an underlying problem.

BTW What the hell is ntsysv when it's at home people?

Thanks for the response,

I am new to Linux, I purchased a book named: Linux Network Server 24Seven. I have extensive experience with Windows NT and Netware in a NOS environment. I am trying this with my box @ home. I have 8 Boxes running diff OS's, and would like to learn Linux the way I know Netware and NT. I am going chapter by chapter installing everything the book goes over.

Install went ok, BIND went somewhat Ok, and now I am @ DHCP. I am not using this in a production environment, just want to see how it is configured and how it works.

BTW: I have not tried installing other rpm's, that is a good idea. I will try to install something small and see how it goes.

I will try to download the correct file, I had also tried the dhcp-2.012.src.rpm. I will try the *i386.rpm

Thanks you both for your help.

DHCP Resolved

Thanks for all the responses. I was trying to install the rpm via linuxconf. It was giving me an error saying I was missing packages. I installed it (dhcp-2.0-12.i386.rpm) via the command line.

rpm -i dhcp-2.0-12.i386.rpm

and it worked, why it was giving me an error ....... I have no idea.

I tested it and it worked ok,

Thanks

Manny

Jamie... answer.

NAME
ntsysv - simple interface for configuring runlevels

SYNOPSIS
ntsysv [--back] [--level <levels>]

DESCRIPTION
ntsysv is a simple interface for configuring runlevel services which are also configurable through chkconfig.
By default, it configures the current runlevel. If the user would like to configure other runlevels, those
levels can be specified on the command line by listing the levels after --levels, without any spaces. For
example, the option --levels 016 edits runlevels 0, 1, and 6.

A service is considered to be started in the runlevel set if it is started in any of the runlevels which are
being edited.

The ntsysv window normally contains a Cancel button. If --back is specified, a Back button appears instead.
