Good thought on trying the 6.1 dhcpcd -- I had a similar issue with a
RedHat install several months ago and that fixed the problem for me.
Did you compare the "ifup" script where it calls dhcpcd? Come to think
of it, doesn't it call "pump" by default and you need to edit the file
to get it to use dhcpcd?
I had to both use a very old version of dhcpcd (from RedHat 5.2) as well
as add the "-h <hostname>" option to dhcpcd as so:
if /sbin/dhcpcd -d -h c77777-b eth0 ; then
echo " done."
echo " failed."
But only dhcpcd-1.3.16 works for me; dunno why.
If "pump" is still being called in the ifup script, or if there's
another copy of dhcpcd already running, running a second DHCP client
will not work. Use 'ps waux | grep dhcp' (and 'grep pump') to be sure
no other clients are running. Kill any that are, and you can experiment
with the above dhcpcd command line from the promp (as root, of course).
Hope this helps,
