Ah..... /etc/conf.d/net....... been there often. Sorry ... didn't know
that it was
referred to as net scripts (duh).
I've looked through net and have found some interesting options for both
dhcpcd (e.g. dhcpcd_eth0="-t 10", which seems to be a dhcpcd command line
parameter), and for
"generic" dhcp (e.g. dhcp_eth0="release nodns nontp nonis nogateway
1. Have seen nothing that lowers dhcpcd privilege!? What am I missing?
(dhcpcd starts fine, but sits out there as a root process)
2. Where can I get a list of other "generic" dhcp commands, please.
Thanks for your (patient) help! (newbie)
