Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Package dhcpcd has no available version, but exists in the database.
This typically means that the package was mentioned in a dependency and
never uploaded, has been obsoleted or is not available with the contents
E: Package dhcpcd has no installation candidate
I downloaded the dhcpcd package from the potato tree and tried to install
it but it conflicted with dhclient and other software here, and i didn't
want to fiddle with that stuff too much; not yet anyway.
It's still not working tho i am hoping, perhaps in vain, for some sort of
dialog with the Charter tech support people. (I have a charter pipeline
account, i don't know how i may have insinuated AT&T, but sorry for any
I also have a windows partition here that i could boot to and glom some
config data; just thought about that. Then maybe i could set it up with
ifconfig once i had the data.
No, that didn't work, copying the apropriate parameters from the windows
box to ifconfig. Don't know why, but i bet i'm just not supposed to do
I keep getting the feeling that i'll need the ISP-assigned hostname.
It's only been a couple days since i emailed the tech support people, so
i'll cut them a break. Charter uses the the tech support people for line
techs when needed, and right now is is tornado/windstorm season here, so
i'm probably stuck for a few days.
Thanks for the callback,
