I hope one of you guys out there can help me out here. I'm working with
RedHat 8.0 and attempting to set up a web server. I'm on GCI's cable modem
and don't currently have a static IP. Installing RedHat works fine. No
Now, here's my problem: When I compile a new kernel (ver 2.4.20), it breaks
my networking! Device eth0 comes up fine, but it fails to configure its IP
via DHCP. I have CONFIG_IP_PNP set to Y and CONFIG_IP_PNP_DHCP set to Y as
well. I know DHCP is installed and working because the old kernel
(2.4.18-26.8.0 Athlon architecture RPM from RedHat's FTP) has no trouble
getting an IP via DHCP on boot.
Are there other kernel components that this requires that I'm missing? Or
is there another file I need to look at? I'd be happy to post my .config
file if you guys request it. Any help would be welcome.
