dhcpcd-4.0.0-beta3 gets some NetBSD lovin

19 May 2008 • 1 min read

Props for this release goes out to Jörg Sonnenberger of NetBSD who's been doing some nice patches 😃 Part of his patchset changed the sockets to non blocking and relying on zero bytes returned to mark loop end. This makes us more efficient and removes having to expose the interface buffer part of the API to the code that get packets from the socket. Hopefully no regressions have been caused by this.We've also fixed a few bugs along the way, mainly with hostname being set to blank and renewing the right IP for systems without fork().
