/sbin/dhcpcd: not running - Slackware 10


Day three...

When I type:

./rc.inet1 stop

I get the message:

**** /sbin/dhcpcd: not running

Afterwards, I type:

./rc.inet1 start

I get the message:

dhcpcd: MAC address = 00:d0:59:c5:1e:b5

Then I type:

ifconfig

I only get the 'lo' entry back.

My rc.inet1.conf file looks like:

Quote:
IPADDR[0]=""
NETMASK[0]=""
USE_DHCP[0]="YES"
DHCP_HOSTNAME[0]=""
We don't have DHCP Hostnames at our office...

I don't know why this has to be so hard. Geez, I got SuSE 9.1 Pro running DHCP without any issues.

ANY Guidance would be helpful. I have exhausted LQ and Google on this subject.

Thank you for reading this post.

Run netconfig, instead of mocking around with rc.inet1

George666, thank you for the response. I do run netconfig and I run the exact same steps as I outline before with the same results.

I see alot off issues with Slackware 10 and DHCP, I skipped Slackware 9. Maybe I should go back and try that.

1. Try setting the IP (static) with a valid IP in your network. use netconfig
becareful with this step. I suggest you use the IP assign to you in Suse 9.1 Pro.

2. ping your gateway/dhcp server.

Any responds?

If yes, play around directly with dhcpcd
man dhcpcd to get info on it

I suggest simple stuff like

dhcpcd -k (clean up whatever leftover client)
dhcpcd -s your.prefered.ip.add (use the same IP as you set)

ping your gateway.

coryrc. YES! That is exactly what it does.

Any insight is very much welcomed.

carboncopy: Thank you for the response. But I was able to get SuSE 9.1 Pro running with either DHCP or static IP.

**** I will note that I can get Slackware 10 to run with a static IP running Netconfig without issues. ****
