BLFS dhcpcd

First, when I boot into the system, eth0 is brought up just fine. Obviously my network is setup to use DHCP, being that implies the configure scripts are setup to mirror the same configuration that exists within the BLFS explaination.

Upon login, the internet works, an 'ifconfig' verifies this. I've installed 'wget', and I've been able to retrieve files without problem. I've also ran ./ifdown-eth0, no problems. No problems when running ./ifup-eth0 either. Of course, this is from the network-devices directory.

Then, when I reboot/shutdown, well, the image conveys the resulting error efficiently.

I believe the DHCP client process is being killed before eth0 is taken down. I'm not toally sure how to fix this, any ideas?

I contacted the lfs-dev, though, I have not received a response as of yet.

Once again, nevermind. I've discovered a solution. In /etc/rc.d/rc6.d/, I needed to simply rename K80network to something like K30network so it would be queued first.
