Whenever if the IP is set manually, it work correcly.
This is a bug ?
You should check that you have a carrier on the fxp card with ifconfig.
Unlike dhclient, dhcpcd will (by default) only look for a lease on an
interface with a live connection. Compare the status lines here (I
removed the capabilities lines for clarity):
wm1: flags=8802<BROADCAST,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
media: Ethernet autoselect
bge0: flags=8802<BROADCAST,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
media: Ethernet autoselect (none)
status: no carrier
If your interface shows no carrier, but is connected and works when a
manual address is configured, then this is a driver bug (not a dhcpcd
You can use the -K flag to dhcpcd to skip the carrier test.
