I build dhcdbd with -DDHCLIENT_EXTENDED_OPTION_ENVIRONMENT=0, so it doesn't
try to use -x, which I assume will only cause problems like that issue with
ubuntu I was having a week or two ago. The packages I've seen for dhcp don't
have support for -x either, is this a distro-added option?
The dhclient script does have the correct magic to push info back to dhcdbd.
dhcp 3.0.3-r5 on gentoo has the dbus lines in your other email included in
dhclient-script. It was in 3.0.2-something too, I'm not sure why it wasn't in
Either way, it's there now.
NetworkManager 0.5.1 is now functioning correctly. I can see the signal bars
in the notification area, ... and I mean, I'm typing this email.
I assume it would work in 0.5.2 as well, although like I said, I gave up on that
temporarily because wpa_supplicant doesn't play nice with one of my cards.
