hi,
/etc/rc.d/init.d/dhcp is only for bootup. you dont have to run this

if you want to use dhcp as client, then simply run "dhclient"
see here http://www.plop.at/en/ploplinux.html#faq2

fine,
i add file "startpdhcp" with content
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/sh
echo " starting dhcp"
dhclient
to start from runme.sh,
is it possible to start dhclient to work in background?
