dhcpcd-8.1.5 released

    03 Jan 2020 • 1 min read

    with the following changes:

    • inet: Allow forcing a host route from an interface without a lease
    • dhcpcd: Don't wait for an address family to complete if not using it
    • Linux: fix RA time unit confusion

    If you are suffering from IPv6 addresses not transitioning from the tentative state (regression from dhcpcd-8.1 on Linux) you will need to do one of the following after installing dhcpcd:

    • reboot

    ** OR **

    • dhcpcd -x
    • echo 1000 > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/neigh/$interface/retrans_time_ms
    • ip -f inet6 a flush
    • start dhcpcd as normal
