I have a question on DHCP client. using Busybox DHCP client (udhcp), there is only one DHCP server on network, when the DHCP server is down, DHCP client sends out one DHCP DISCOVER packet, after that it just waits on select call (select always returns 1), it never re-send DHCP discover again?. is this is bug?. is there any patch, right now using 1.9.1 busybox code.
I tesed with embeded OS DHCP client, where as there, the client always sends out DISCOVER packet
