Fedora Test Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 4
Name        : dhcp
Version     : 3.0.2                      
Release     : 16.FC4                  
Summary     : A DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server and relay agent.
Description :
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is a protocol which allows
individual devices on an IP network to get their own network
configuration information (IP address, subnetmask, broadcast address,
etc.) from a DHCP server. The overall purpose of DHCP is to make it
easier to administer a large network. The dhcp package includes the
DHCP server and a DHCP relay agent.

You should install dhcp if you want to set up a DHCP server on your
network. You will also need to install the pump package, which
provides the DHCP client daemon, on client machines.


* Tue Aug 23 2005 Jason Vas Dias <jvdias at redhat.com> 10:3.0.2-16
- fix bug 160655: strip trailing '\0' bytes from text options before append
- fix bug 163203: silence ISC blurb on configtest
- improve dhclient-script restarting of ypbind on yp.conf changes
- remove the 1-5 second wait on dhclient startup altogether
- change ISC version string to 'V3.0.2-RedHat' at request of ISC
- Allow package to compile with glibc-headers-2.3.5-10.3 (tr.c's use of __u16)
- don't explicitly require 2.2 era kernel, it's fairly overkill at this point
