Suddenly can't browse the web...


I could browse the web fine, now I can't. The only things I can think of that I've done that could have caused this is: commenting out all the lines in inetd.conf, and removing some packages with pkgtool.

I'm almost positive uncommenting out all the services won't affect this, because inetd.conf is just for deamons, right?

The only thing I can think of is I accidentally removed a package I shouldn't have. There was a DHCP package, that said something about server and client. I removed it as I wanted to have as little server software on my box as possible, and I thought they wouldn't package the server and client into one package. Am I wrong? Do they have both the DHCP server & client in the same package?

If so, how can I get it back? I tried pkgtool, but I believe I need to boot off the CD and install them, correct? If I do I'll have to reburn it...

Doing a ifconfig shows the IP address as 127.0.0.1, so it seems something is wrong with DHCP.

I searched for the DHCP package on the website, I'll download it from there and install.

I'm slightly confused. I see 2 packages:

dhcp-3.0pl2-i386-1
dhcpcd-1.3.22pl4-i386-1

I only want the DHCP client. It seems to me that I need to get the 2nd package, but I thought that a daemon offers it's service to clients. Am I wrong about this, and do I indeed need the 2nd one?

dhcpcd: dhcpcd (DHCP client daemon)
dhcpcd:
dhcpcd: The DHCP client program dhcpcd is used to connect to a network by
dhcpcd: contacting a DHCP server. dhcpcd gets an IP address and other
dhcpcd: information from a corresponding DHCP server, configures the network
dhcpcd: interface automatically, and tries to renew the lease time according
dhcpcd: to RFC2131 or RFC1541 depending on the command line option.
dhcpcd:
dhcpcd:
dhcpcd:
dhcpcd:

that's what it says it will do.
