dhcpcd - Dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP) client daemon ChangeLog


# dhcpcd 1.3.22pl4
# ================
# Slackware 8.1's 'dhcpcd' package includes version 1.3.22pl1, Slackware
# 9.0, 9.1 and 10.0's packages all include version 1.3.22pl14

# dhcpcd is part of the tcpip2 package in Slackware 8.0 and down and it's
# own package in 8.1 and up.  If you're replacing dhcpcd in Slack 8.0 or
# less, run this to remove the old version.  We're purposely not removing
# /etc/dhcpc/* because that contains info about the last IP you had, if
# you remove it, you can't do a quick DHCPREQUEST/DHCPACK the next time
# dhcpcd starts (you'll do a DHCPDISCOVER, etc. and might get a new IP if
# yours is dynamically assigned).
rm -f /sbin/dhcpcd /usr/man/man8/dhcpcd.8.gz
rm -rf /etc/dhcpc /usr/doc/dhcpcd-*

# If you removed Slack installed files above, also remove lines from the
# tcpip2 package that reference files from the old dhcpcd that has been
# removed:

# dhcpcd is normally called from /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 if DHCP is set to "yes"

# dhcpcd logs to syslog's local0 facility, so if you want a log for just
# dhcpcd, add something like this to /etc/syslog.conf and HUP syslogd:
# local0.*          /var/log/dhcpcd.log
# or if you use syslog-ng, add the lines below to your
# /usr/local/etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf  This assumes that you have source
# "local" set up.
# filter local0 { facility(local0); };
# destination dhcpcd { file("/var/log/dhcpcd.log"); };
# log { source(local); filter(local0); destination(dhcpcd); };
