dhcp client

How do I enable an dhcp client on one of my interfaces?
1 Solution
You need to create two empty files, /etc/hostname.<interface> and /etc/dhcp.<interface>, where <interface> is the name of the network interface which should be configured via dhcp.

touch /etc/hostname.elxl0
touch /etc/dhcp.elxl0
