Yes, I knew that. But with "denyinterfaces *" I assume it is
going to need to be told to start on the new interface - but that's
what ifwatchd is good for (or should be).
Sadly yes, but that's because you're abusing the way dhcpcd was
designed to work.
dhcpcd has grown into a network manager like application which seems to
conflict with your setup.
I didn't mean to say that it couldn't be done (I had no idea), but
I don't think it is the right place, almost everything could be
dhcpcd.conf and made to work, but that doesn't mean it is (always)
I know I can have dhcpcd statically configure addresses (etc) but
seems perverse to me - it is hardly the job of a dhcp client to avoid
after all - it is easier, cleaner, and more in line with tradition
with what other people expect to see when they look at the config) to
configure the addresses with ifconfig, rather than adding config to
in order for it to do the job.
But in any case, I'm not sure you quite understood what I meant, it
that I want to configure the wireless differently when I see one or
ssid on it, rather, I want to use the detected ssid on the wireless
to change the configuration of other interfaces (when the ssid tells
me I am
at work, I change the way I configure the wired interface, when the
tells me I am at home, I do a different type of wired network config,
when the ssid is at some strange unknown place, I generally don't
wired network configured (by default) at all.
Well I do have to admin that defining how the wired is configured based
on the SSID quite odd.
Can you explain why you do this? Maybe dhcpcd can make it easier, or
it's just outside its scope.
