Hey

I have a serious problem in MC3rc1 / busybox 1.17
It fails to retrieve an IP-adress by dhcp.

I have traced the problem to be udhcpc in the busybox version 1.17.

I have tried TC alpha5, MC alpha 5, and it works in both.
I have tried to use the busybox from alpha5 (1.16.1), and then it works
I have output from both attached.

I can see from a wireshark-scan, that they sends 2 different packages with different flags to my router, and thereby fails.

I have NOT checked in TC 3rc1, but nobody seems to complain. weird.

I know, that udhcpc sends the package, and it is part of busybox, so it is probably their problem more than ours ;)

My MC V3rc1 udhpcd is working with both the ISCdhcp and dnsmasq servers.

@batnas: Please file a bug at https://bugs.busybox.net/ - include packet dumps from both cases.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Will do as soon i have created an account.

Can any of you verify the bug.

Also, I forgot to mention, that I was running MC in VMWare. I don't hope it makes a big difference

This is the first I've heard. Runs fine for me.
