Some weird text about dhcpcd during boot.


When I start my computer I get some text about dhcpcd, which I normally don't get. Normally I get only 1 line of dhcpcd. What does this mean?
Code:
dhcpcd[1654]: broadcasting DHCP_DISCOVER

dhcpcd[1654]: broadcastAddr option is missing in DHCP server response. Assuming 80.220.191.255

dhcpcd[1654]: dhcpIPaddrLeaseTime=32400 in DHCP server response.

dhcpcd[1654]: dhcpT1value is missing in DHCP server response. Assuming 16200 sec

dhcpcd[1654]: dhcpT2value is missing in DHCP server response. Assuming 28350 sec

dhcpcd[1654]: DHCP_OFFER received from  (80.220.176.1)

dhcpcd[1654]: broadcasting DHCP_REQUEST for 80.220.188.32

dhcpcd[1654]: dhcpIPaddrLeaseTime=32400 in DHCP server response.

dhcpcd[1654]: dhcpT1value is missing in DHCP server response. Assuming 16200 sec

dhcpcd[1654]: dhcpT2value is missing in DHCP server response. Assuming 28350 sec

dhcpcd[1654]: DHCP_ACK received from  (80.220.176.1)
I got Slackware-current and a self compiled kernel 2.6.16.

This looks like a normal DHCP client/server session. It also looks like the DHCP server is not populating some fields and dhcpcd is setting default values. But it has asked for and received IP address 80.220.188.32. dhcpcd is just being a little chatty about what is going on.

I recently discovered that it keeps on pasting the same thing on the tty1 occasionally.

Is there anyway I can "turn" that off?
