re: CVS commit: src/share/man/man5

None of these may be attractive to you personally, but this simple
change would cut out about 80% of the support requests I get and that's
quite attractive to me.

Can't we have the best of both worlds by allowing dhcpcd to receive messages to configure interfaces as rc parses interface configurations? Then we can have still one instance, but not requiring to mention the interfaces in the
configuration file?

The single instance dhcpcd already accepts messages

dhcpcd #start dhcpcd up
dhcpcd -x bgeo # Stop dhcpcd on the bge0 interface
dhcpcd -n iwi0 # Restart dhcpcd on the iwi0 interface

Works just fine.

However, you don't gain anything from setting dhcpcd=YES and ifconfig_bge0=dhcp because dhcpcd is permissive by default.



PS, reply to me directly please as I'm not subbed to this list.
