nice to meet a man with my problem...I thougt the problem was only with italians...
if you red the topic you will know that it is for long time I used the patience of the senior members of this forum. Now, I will try to cancel the packet DHCPCD (perhaps a conflict with DHCP...), the packet DHCP (I will run netconfig with IP static), and eventually I cancel 10.2 and try to install Slack 10. I will post the result.

perhaps it's an issue with the kernel/module and not with dhcpcd itself??

maybe a BIOS issue??

all of you with the problem are using a realtek 8139 card, right?? what revision??

what kernel versions are you guys using?? pre-compiled or self-compiled??

BTW, i am using an RTL-8139 (rev 10) card also (and a sis900), with a DHCP configured connection on the 8139, using dhcpcd... it works fine here... i am using kernel 2.4.33-pre1, but i never had dhcpcd problems with either 2.4.32/31/30/29 etc...

Code:
bash-3.00$ /sbin/lspci | grep 8139
00:0b.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
bash-3.00$ /sbin/lsmod | grep 8139
8139too                12904   1
mii                     2272   0 [8139too]
crc32                   2880   0 [sis900 8139too]
bash-3.00$ uname -r
2.4.33-pre1
bash-3.00$ ps aux | grep dhcpcd | grep -v grep
root        93  0.0  0.0   1408   508 ?        Ss   08:06   0:00 /sbin/dhcpcd -d -t 60 eth0

gusgoose_it.. it happens to bulgarians too man
but now i've fixed it... finally. i had 2 NICs and the first one (build-in) was broken and i forgot to disable it from the BIOS. when i ran netconfig it configured my broken NIC so i could get a respond from the dhcp. so i disabled it and i made a full re-intall of slackware. in netconfig i choose DHCP without entrying dhcp host and here i am writtin this post so it was a hardware problem afterall.......
my /etc/rc.d/rc.netdevice looks like:
Code:
/sbin/modprobe 8139too
i guest that's how your looks like
do you have other NICs installed? or maybe the problem commes from the NIC you're using. good luck my friend. i'll try to help with all i can

wow!!! now it works!!! I installed Slack 10, I doesnt run netconfig, I edited manually rc.inet1.conf by put "yes" on "USE_DHCP" and it works (I dont know why)
againstall: P.S. what is NIC ?
win32sux: I use only precompiled kernel, I doesnt change BIOS (one week ago Klaxs worked with the same BIOS) I hope you will know what happens, I post some useful things. Now I will try to install (sixth time...)Slack 10.2

okay it looks like it was a kernel/module issue...

this is what your modules looked like on 10.2 (kernel 2.4.31):
Code:
8139too 13928 0
mii 2272 0 [8139too]
crc32 2880 0 [8139too]
this is what they look like now on 10.0 (kernel 2.4.26):
Code:
8139too 14376 1
mii 2272 0 [8139too]
crc32 2880 0 [8139too]
notice how the module wasn't getting used on 10.2, yet on 10.0 it is...

so if you wanna get it to work on 10.2 you need to focus on the kernel IMHO... i'd say compile yourself a 2.4.32 (the lastest 2.4 stable release at the time of this post) or a 2.4.33-pre1 (the latest 2.4 prepatch at the time of this post) and see if it helps... if it doesn't, well, it's time to research/google about this to see if it's a known-issue or what the deal is...

NIC = network interface card...

I used the same network card in a 10.2 install, but I use the test26.s kernel. Works fine

hey i just saw in this thread a suggestion for appending the "noapic" kernel boot option to deal with an 8139too issue...

i'm not sure if it's what's happening to you in 10.2, but if you want to get your 10.2 working then i'd say it's worth a shot... i guess you could also try disabling ACPI in the BIOS to see if it helps... in fact, if you aren't using ACPI then you should probably have it disabled anyways...

for the "noapic" just edit your lilo.conf and add noapic to the "append" part (between the quotes)... then execute lilo with a "lilo -v"...

is your 8139 card an integrated one?? or is it in a pci slot?? i ask cuz most of the reports i've googled similar to yours are with integrated 8139s...

something you might wanna check is that the "PNP OS" option in your BIOS is set to "No"...

oh, and another boot option you could try is the "acpi=off" one...

halleluiah, slack 10.2 works!!!
On BIOS I disabled the option PnP OS, I installed Slack 10.2 (the 14th time...) without netconfig, then I edited the file inet1.conf putting "yes" on USE_DHCP", I decommented on rc.modules sbin/modprobe 8139too and it works!!!
that's incredible, but the only thing I made compared to the past 13 attempts is disable the PnP OS on BIOs!
win32sux: thanks for your patience, I confess that without you I passed out slackware
A cup of coffee to you!!!
to all: I was a pleasure to meet you into this international forum
