I have a standard out of the box Mandrake 7.0 Setup. I have a cable modem and am assiged address via DHCP. Last night I tried using
both pump and dhcpc that came installed by default. Neither of these
worked correctly with my ISP's lease assignment. I found another client
dhclient from ISC (http://www.isc.org/
) and got it to work by just running it from the command line.
Now my question is where do I need to put this so it will be run automatically when my system starts up. I did find some references to
pump and dhcpc in /sbin/ifup but then I tried replacing either the pump or
dhcpc command line with the dhclient line it didn't work. But when my
system came up I could issuse the command ifup eth0 from a command prompt and then everything worked ok.
