    DHCPCD on Boot


    Hello Guys,

    When I boot my box i get a little message displayed that appears to be running a DHCP on my NIC to aquire the addess details.

    Unfortunatly it appears to not be working properly, or it is trying to DHCP on my wifi card that is set as Eth0 on the box.

    I rarely use by WIFI, and i'm actualy just looking to have DHCP grab the address for my standard NIC which is set on the box as 'eth1'.

    I can manualy run 'dhcpcd eth1' from the commands prompt and it grabs the details automaticaly without any issues, i just need to initiate it on boot.

    Thanks,

    Rob

    I'm not sure but look in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf

    Thanks RCGREEN,

    After I installed the latest kernels and things like that it has started to recognise the wifi card as a seperate entity and set my standard nic to Eth0 and is running the DHCP on boot by itself.

    Thanks,

    Rob
