Re: Unable to get IP address after new kernel compile

I compiled 2.4.18 (from the debian disks), and

(dhclient eth0), but if I use the old kernel (2.2.20),
I am able to get an IP address ?

Any idea whats up ?

Yup. I think you didn't enable CONFIG_FILTER which is
needed by dhclient. Enable this and recompile. It's not
enabled by default, I got pretty frustrated before I
found out what was wrong :=).
