Re: DHCP client
Just out of curiosity, are there plans to include dhcpcd in the base
system for Potato? When I wanted to do an internet install over my
cable modem, it involved also downloading the dhcpcd and netstd
packages, and installing them in a Virtual Console, after installing
base, but before installing the rest of the system. Unfortunately,
I lost the option to get any of the shake-n-bake package selections,
and had to select my packages by hand. Not an unplesent experience,
but enough of a pain to worth mentioning.
