Description

LSAC(v2)
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a protocol that allows individual devices on an IP network to get their own network configuration information, including an IP address, a subnet mask, and a broadcast address. The dhcp packages provide a relay agent and ISC DHCP service required to enable and administer DHCP on a network. This update fixes the following bug: * When the dhclient utility was executed with the "-1" command-line option, and then issued a DHCPDECLINE message, it restarted the process of acquiring a lease instead of exiting, as is expected with the "-1" option. A patch has been provided to address this bug and now, after sending a DHCPDECLINE message, dhclient prints out an error message and exits properly. (BZ#902359) All users of dhcp are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
