It's not quite that simple :)
You need dhcpcd-9.3.3 or better and the patch here:
Hopefully merged upstream soon so NetworkManager can enjoy dhcpcd-9.
Thanks a lot for the info. So, is this for privsep setup only, or for
dhcpcd-9 in general? I decided I don't need privsep, is this still
optional in dhcpcd-9?
dhcpcd-9 in general.
Basically older versions always modified the host in some way or still
backgrounded the master processs with the -B option.
dhcpcd-9.3.3 changes that and added the --noconfigure option which is
why it's now tied to a specific minimum version which makes upstream
NetworkManager very happy.
Cool. I'd like to try the patch. I downloaded the patch at
but it fails to apply on NetworkManager-1.28.0. Is there a version of
the patch for NetworkManager-1.28.0?
