#3273 closed defect (fixed)
dhcp make install does not provide /sbin/dhclient-script
|Reported by:||Michael Westbom||Owned by:|
/sbin/dhclient-script is required for /sbin/dhclient to properly assign an IP address to an interface.
The file is not copied to /sbin/dhclient-script by the install process. I'm not sure, but it seems as though they decided upstream to make users place the file manually. The iproute2 patch already adjusts it to work with iproute2, but we don't copy it to the system at any time.
EI propose adding an instruction somewhere post-'make install':
cp client/scripts/linux /sbin/dhclient-script
to either http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/svn/basicnet/dhcp.html or http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/svn/basicnet/dhcpclient.html
Or we could write a patch for client/Makefile to copy it. That's above my pay-grade, however.
