[CentOS] dhcpd rpm

Yeah, this issue’s been brought up in the past.  One of the maintainer of FC 13 made the srpm available (I believe he prepped the spec file) for RHEL/CentOS 5 for dhcpd 4.1.  We started looking at it and the problems are the dependencies and the dependencies of the dependencies.  There are no srpms or rpms for those and the project becomes a real monster.  


We’ve found the problem is generally caused by the time being out of sync between the servers or the dhcpd daemon on one of the boxes dies.  To mitigate this problem we’ve setup custom Nagios alerts which utilize dhcping to alert us when a dhcpd process dies.  We’ve also setup custom scripts that will restart the dead process on the box.  So, we’re just waiting for CentOS 6 to be released.

Try find-out SPEC file and rpm source, recompile it, this is the faster way I think, if you have big issue. 


Fedora they released 4.1, check it.

No, I hadn't. I'm just a tad surprised - that was rated "important", and
looked as though it would be released soon. And with 6 coming soon, I was
thinking, though I haven't gone to look, that they'd have 3.1 or 4.x.

Thanks, though.
