I recompiled my kernel (Red Hat 9), and everything went find except eth0 couldn't grap an IP. It seems like I missed something in the compile (in xconfig) that would enable dhcp, but I can't figure out what. When I run the redhat /sbin/dhclient script, it of course doesn't work, and says CONFIG_PACKET and CONFIG_FILTER needs to be enabled in kernel. Well, they now both are and I still can't grab an IP from the dhcp server (my router).
also fails to grab an IP
And NIC driver is loaded and works fine. So what's amatter? What don't I have configured in my kernel?
