Re: DHCP timeout is too short for this college network

Yeah too good to be true.  I see two ways to change the timeout.

1.Change this - /NetworkManager/src/dhcp-manager/nm-dhcp-manager.c:#define NM_DHCP_TIMEOUT   45 /* DHCP timeout, in seconds */


2. call this function somehere? /NetworkManager/src/nm-device-olpc-mesh.c: nm_device_set_dhcp_timeout (NM_DEVICE (self), 20);

To compile follow:
git clone git://
cd NetworkManager
./ --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var
sudo make install

There are alteast 10 dev packages you will have to install, but keep running and when it fails go hunt down the dev package.  Note some are not obvious by the name.
