Have your 2.4.X kernels got the CONFIG_PACKET (Packet socket) and
(Socket Filtering) enabled ?

The dhcpd README stats that those options are necessary.

I'm not running a DHCP server. I'm using pump to configure my NIC via DHCP. And, this problem *never* existed before I installed the 2.4.19 kernel.
