IP release and renew in slack
I dual boot slack 12.1 with WinXP. But whenever I log into slack (after restarting from xp) my net connection is never working since XP holds onto the IP it obtained from my router. Is there a release/renew command in slack? After searching around the net I came across these particular commands
(Another command "pump" was mentioned here in these forums also)
But whenever I try to issue the following commands (as a su) I get "No such Command" error. I made sure that eth0 is "up". Also doing dhcpcd eth0 just times out.
Another side query does the lo interface needs to be taken down? Or just let it run.. Any help greatly appreciated.
