Restart dhcpcd service in slackware 13.37?
 
I remember back then using slackware 13.1 i could restart the dhcpcd service with /etc/rc.d/rc.dhcpcd restart, now that script is gone. How can i stop/start/restart dhcp now?

dhcpcd by itself should be enough. There are other rc.* scripts that invoke dhcpcd too.

Slackware never had a "/etc/rc.d/rc.dhcpcd" script in the past. Perhaps you confuse the client daemon (dhcpcd) with the DHCP server daemon (dhcpd) which by the way also never had a rc script in Slackware. I have one available here.

What you usually do is run "/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart" or run "dhcpcd --rebind" if you want the DHCP client daemon to rebind.
