Description

The paths in the dhcpcd service script appear to be wrong. Without this patch I can not bring my device down, view it's status, or bring it up without an error.

Using the variables is a good change regardless, but are you sure the path changed to /var/lib/dhcpcd? I'm looking at the source right now, and it's hardcoded to /var/lib/dhcpc in src/pathnames.h.

Maybe it changed in the newer version, I have 3.0.7 installed on 4 systems here. They all needed that mod. (I recently went from static to dhcp.)

If the older version is dhcpc, should it be changed to dhcpcd? or should the bootscript have a conditional on the version?

I didn't know about version 3, but looking at the project page, it first got released in November. We should work on getting that into BLFS.

As long as we have 2.0.8 in the book, I'd rather not the default for now and wait till we move to version 3 and get the change by default.

I will check in the changes to use the variables, though.

OK, the variables are fixed in r6810. I am also playing with 3.0.17 right now. You're right, the paths have changed. I'll be sure to fix that when I update. Thanks, Joe.
