dhcpcd                                                             version 9.4.0
________________________________________________________________________________

dhcpcd is an implementation of the DHCP client specified in RFC 2131. dhcpcd
gets the host information (IP address, routes, etc) from a DHCP server and
configures the network interface of the machine on which it is running.

dhcpcd then runs the configuration script which writes DNS information to
resolvconf(8), if available, otherwise directly to /etc/resolv.conf. If the
hostname is currently blank, (null) or localhost, or force_hostname is YES or
TRUE or 1 then dhcpcd sets the hostname to the one supplied by the DHCP server.
dhcpcd then daemonises and waits for the lease renewal time to lapse. It will
then attempt to renew its lease and reconfigure if the new lease changes. [0]
