Package: boot-floppies
Version: N/A; reported 2001-05-22
Severity: grave

The the replacement of pump with dhcp-client has broken dhcp support on 

I checked the kernel configs for kernel-image-2.2.19-i386 and they are 


We need to make sure af_packet.o is included on the root filesystem and do a 
modprobe af_packet.o before trying to do dhcp.  We also need to create 

We also need to verify that other archs have the necessary configs.

This is the message form Mike Stone that further describes the dhcp problem:

Mail-Followup-To: debian-testing@lists.debian.org,
I tried the floppies with the 5/18 date from http.us, didn't get very
far. Unformatted ramblings follow.
I used the "compact" floppy set. The top-level floppies didn't have the
3c59x driver compiled in, and I wanted to avoid burning 3 driver
The install process asked me for the driver floppy anyway. ISTR that the
potato install asks whether you want to bother with it.
DHCP config failed completely. First, dhclient seemed to be looking for
/var/dhcp so it could write dhclient.leases. I created that directory,
then it returned various errors:

  expr: not found
  [: 2: unexpected operator
  socket: Address family not supported by protocol
  Make sure to set CONFIG_PACKET=y and CONFIG_FILTER=y in your kernel config
