Re: DHCP timeouts

At the IETF they're having a slight DHCP issue where sometimes it
can take a minute or more to get a response.  Yeah, this is a
broken DHCP server, but NM seems to time out at 45 second,
whereas running dhclient directly (via ifup) seems to do a
much better job, mostly because it doesn't stop at 45 seconds.
Is there some way to configure NM to extend that time?  I looked
in gconf but couldn't find a configuration parameter to set
the DHCP timeout.  Does one exist or is 45s hardcoded?


Unfortunately 45 Seconds is hard coded in nm-dhcp-manager.c
