Hi: When working at the console, say /dev/tty3, it often happens that a group of messages are printed on it. An example:
dhcpcd: sending DHCP_REQUEST for <some IP number> to <some IP number>
The last message of the group consists in someone saying someone else acknowledged (it contains the DHCP_ACK token).
The only effect on what I'm doing at the moment the messages are printed is to make a bit of a mess of the screen and all I have to do is to refresh the screen and EVERYTHING goes back to normal as far as I am aware of, except of course, that a new bunch of messages can break in. The only thing I have touched in the last couple of months is to run the setup program from the Slackware boot disk, option Configuration ("We are going to configure your system ...") to install the HAL daemon, which I had not loaded in the last Slackware installation. Which I did a few days ago. The messages thing began a little later.
Of course the question is how to fix the problem, in case I made clear what the problem is. I attach the dmesg commmand output, where there seems to be some problem related with corrupted packets (see bottom of file) but I do not think this has anything to do with the specific problem stated which, for the time being, is the one I would like to fix.
