And, to get this on record ... _I_ encountered what ought to be considered a
serious bug in IRIX's Proclaim Server. If it cannot parse the
/etc/config/dhcp_bootp.options file, it will fill your disk with logged
error messages. It keeps starting, spitting out a dozen or so error
messages, and dying. About 3 times per second on my machine. Commanding
"chkconfig proclaim_server off" slows the flow, but doesn't stop it. You
have to edit /etc/inetd.conf and comment out the bootp line.
Not what I'd call "top quality."
However, I did get it working, sort of. It hands out addresses, but the
documented procedure for assigning specific IP addresses to specific MAC
addresses doesn't seem to work. I can't find any official SGI doco on
this, beyond the dhcpdb man page, and googling has turned up nothing,
