Subject: ipconfig: ignores dhcp options
Date: Wed, 18 May 2011 13:08:47 +0200
Package: klibc-utils
Version: 1.5.20-1
Severity: important
File: ipconfig

ipconfig does not support many dhcp options.

Specifically it does not report the domain-search option which is
required to construct a resolv.conf properly.

It also does not report lease time which is required to construct a
lease file which could be later used by dhclient to renew the lease once
the system boots.
