rt2500 card not getting dhcp lease
Binary package hint: dhcdbd
I currently have a pcmcia wireless card with the rt2500 chipset:
# lspci | grep RT2500
0000:02:00.0 Network controller: RaLink Ralink RT2500 802.11 Carbus Reference Card (rev 01)
Local wireless access points are show in network manager. From network manager an access point is selected, one with no WEP.
Network connection established
No connection established. Network manager sits spinning for some time.
This seems to be caused by dhcdbd not invoking dhclient correctly. The following line is in /var/log/messages:
Jun 27 06:34:32 berry dhcbdb: message_handler: message handler not found under /com/redhat/
The rt2500 makes the wireless card available as ra0 (not eth1 or others). Manually running "dhclient ra0" successfully obtains a wireless lease and enables connectivity.
This bug is to fix dhcdbd so it successfully invokes dhclient for ra0. It is hoped this will enable network-manager to connect.
Version effected: dapper 6.06
