I'm trying to set up DHCP so my laptop (Win98) can have network access
via my real computer (RH 7.1). Anyway, when I try to start dhcpd I get
the following message:
Can't backup lease database /var/lib/dhcp/dhcpd.leases
to /var/lib/dhcp/dhcpd.leases~: No such file or directory
This is after I made the empty file /var/lib/dhcp/dhcpd.leases as per the
dhcpd.leases man page.
Could it be that something isn't right with the dhcpd.conf file? If so,
what could it be. Or is it possible that dhcpd is setup with xinetd or
some crazy thing like that? As a newbie, I haven't yet figured out
This is my first outing with DHCP, so please be verbose with any advice.
