Re: dhcpcd vs dhclient: part II (fxp0)

I see this behavior with all fxp(4) interfaces under 'dhcpcd'.  The

repeatedly configure/unconfigure the interface.

The workaround I use is to add:

   interface fxp0

to my "/etc/dhcpcd.conf" file or pass "-K" option on command line.

This should be alleviated somewhat in -current and -8 with the new address handling. The link will still flap, but dhcpcd will now persist the lease and give time for the lease to be renewed before expiring it and going into discovery once more.
