I have got all the kinks cleared out of my Slack 7 system but one. I
will get to that in a moment. First off, thanks for encouraging me
not to clean install, instead fix what I had done. I learned alot and
feel a helluva lot better for it. Second, Linux is SO much smoother
and more stable than WinNT was. I cannot wait to give it the boot,
Now onto my one lingering problem: Cable modems and DHCP daemons.
I have got system running great as long as I say "no" to DHCP access
in the rc.inet1 file. However, I am now on a DHCP setup and need that
as leases are not permanent. I downloaded the dhcpcd daemon from
metalab and installed it, but it is not loaded at boot. If I have
DHCP uncommented in rc.inet1, then the system picks my current IP,
which I entered, and runs great as I said. However, if I select "yes"
for DHCP in rc.inet1 then the system looks for a DHCP server until it
times out and I get a message about "eth0 media TP".
I have checked out the mans, howtos, etc but I guess it just isn't
registering. Someone care to offer advice?
