Still, as the HOWTO says, after setting up eth0 interface to dhcp (no other
entries), in my case when I reboot, there is no listing of the eth0 interface
in the dmesg of ifconfig output, as it is said there should be. When I run
dhcpcd, the whole machine locks up, it must be powered down to be rebooted. Am
I missing something?
