Some months ago, I have downgraded from dhcpcd 9 to 8 due to issues with network-manager. As I am now refreshing my systems, I was wondering about the status of the two pieces working together.

Is anyone using dhcpcd together with network-manager currently, and if so, how can they make to work together?

If it only disabling privsep, I'm totally fine with that, as I never really saw the upsides compared to the added complexity for a network daemaon mainly performing privileged operations.

It's not quite that simple :)

You need dhcpcd-9.3.3 or better and the patch here:
https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/NetworkManager/NetworkManager/-/merge_requests/668

Hopefully merged upstream soon so NetworkManager can enjoy dhcpcd-9.
