DHCPCD broke, how to install from Slackware install disk?


Damn the luck.

Working on my Slackware laptop, I shut it off and brought it back up the next day and I can't get out to the Internet.

I can get an IP address (check with ifconfig -a shows an IP address and other computers on my network can get out), but still can't get out.

I used removepkg dhcpcd and now I'm trying to reinstall it from my Slackware cdroms.

How do I do this, or am I doing this all wrong?

thanks

It's under /mnt/cdrom/slackware/n/

Or try this:

http://mirrors.usc.edu/pub/linux/dis...pl4-i486-2.tgz

run installpkg dhcpcd-1.3.22pl4-i486-2.tgz as root and that's it.

I recommend installing an auto updater to make this simpler. Something like slackpkg or apt-get or similar will work.

Sorry, I guess if you don't have internet, you can't downlaod that file anyway.

You can also make slackware ask for an address manually:

%ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.101 (or whatever address you want) netmask 255.255.255.0

The netmask is optional, but I like to put it in just in case. This command will ask your DHCP server to assign it an IP address. If the address you're asking is within the range of your DHCP, then it should work. Good luck!

Ya, I just though of assigning an IP address manually...the only problem is when I'm using my wireless card...but let me try this and see what happens.

Um, I mount the install disk and all I see are two files...what do I need to do to get the .tgz files to get DHCPCD back on my machine?

You just need to do

Code:
installpkg /mnt/cdrom/slackware/n/dhcpcd-1.3.22pl4-i486-2.tgz
You need the tgz packge. If you don't have Slackware 10.2 the version and build number may differ.
