This is intentional. We have not yet modified the DHCP client to avoid processing data obtained from the network as root. Only the DHCP server and relay have been modified for that. If you want to take the risk anyway, you can edit the following line in native/Owl/packages/dhcp/dhcp.spec: %define BUILD_DHCP_CLIENT 0 set it to 1, then build the package with "make PACKAGE=dhcp". Owl is primarily intended for servers, so providing a DHCP server was a higher priority for us. -- Alexander Peslyak <solar at openwall.com> GPG key ID: B35D3598 fp: 6429 0D7E F130 C13E C929 6447 73C3 A290 B35D 3598 http://www.openwall.com - bringing security into open computing environments Was I helpful?
