PostPosted: Wed 31 Aug 2016, 18:13    Post subject:  dhcpcd-6.11.3 dropwait and patched pet packages  

I have compiled the dropwait variant of dhcpcd based on the latest released version (as of 8/31/16). I also built a "patched" version of the original that merely extends a wait period by 4 seconds (because I have seen a case where that was needed). They are tested on 32-bit tahrpup and xenial pup and tahrpup64.

Note to slacko users: The attached packages ensure that the dhcpcd file in /usr/sbin is used, by removing slacko's dhcpcd from /sbin. If that is unacceptable, I provide packages tailored for slacko that keep dhcpcd in /sbin.

The source tarballs, "patched" pets and special slacko pets are at:
https://www.mediafire.com/folder/82u3h715oq9my/dhcpcd-6.11.3

I built these packages because tahrpup's 6.7.1 release is now over a year and a half old. Many changes have been made to dhcpcd, so it seems reasonable to get up to date.

EDIT:
To avoid the need for a separate "gz" version of each package, I have re-uploaded them with gz compression, to make them installable in puppies that do not handle xz-compressed pets. However, the packages in the mediafire directory remain with xz compression.

I used xz compression to build the packages. Tahr. Xenial and slacko handle that. Maybe quirky does not have a "petget" that accepts the xz compression. I intend the packages for the newer puppies, but did not consider quirky or the "dogs".

If the above packages fail to install, please try the packages attached here. They are compressed the usual way, with gz compression.

Semme, I doubt the new version will make any difference, because it uses the same "dropwait" logic as version 6.7.1 in tahrpup 6.0.5. But maybe some of the developer's changes can help.

EDIT:
I have re-uploaded (after download numbers 2 & 5) the above packages after converting them to the normal, gz, compression. So, I have also removed the special versions that I attached here.
