I recently installed RH 8.0 and copied my 2.4.19 kernel (src and
config) over from my 7.3 install (same machine). After trying to just
install the modules and use the original image, I decided to do a
complete re-compile with the original configuration (the original
didnt have ext3 support).
Other than adding ext3 support, I made no other changes to the
configuration, but for some reason eth0 doesn't get an IP through
DHCP, but it did when I was using it on 7.3, and it does with the
stock RH8 2.4.18 kernel.
I dont have 'packet socket' and 'socket filtering' configured, which I
think it may need, but the strange thing is it worked fine when I was
using it with 7.3. Is there anything else which may be preventing DHCP
from working properly under RH8 when it worked fine it RH7.3?
