Re: debian@home

I dunno about @home, but the stock dhcp client, pump works fine here
with San Diego roadrunner. I use to have problems with dhcpcd fetching a
new ip after my isp kills my connection for random reasons (and it does
this alot). If you have an ethernet device set up, pump -i eth0 works
nicely ;)
