Re: Failing dhcp

Hi Theetjuh -

What OS are you using ? 

Is there any reason why you can't download the latest NetworkManager
source rpms and dependencies:

And simply rebuild them with 'rpmbuild --rebuild $srcrpm' ?

This shows you are not running the Red Hat patched dhclient, whose version string
would be  :
            DHCP Client V3.0.3-RedHat

dhclient has exited abnormally, perhaps because it does not recognize the '-x' 
option, support for which is provided by the Red Hat dhclient patches - specifically,
'dhcp-3.0.2-extended_option_environment.patch' . You can stop dhcdbd supplying the -x
option by compiling dhcdbd with -DDHCLIENT_EXTENDED_OPTION_ENVIRONMENT=0 , but then
it will be unable to handle user-defined DHCP options.

Since eth0 was not configured, dhcdbd has no record of it .

NetworkManager depends on howl ? Perhaps you should consider installing howl:

It looks like you may be missing some NetworkManager patches also.

I strongly suggest just rebuilding from the latest src rpms .
