Rowdy and myself have been having a discussion about the Qube not
obtaining an IP address after installing from the 3.0 restore cd and
thought it was time to get some help!
After the initial reboot, dmesg shows:
Configuring network interfaces:.

So, dhclient starts and returns 'No bpf devices' and then exits. The
kernel config shows an entry for bpfilter, which is enabled and a look in
/dev does indeed confirm bpf0 - bpf7 exist.
That's as far as we got, any ideas why dhclient says they don't exist?
