12.4. DHCP or Static Networking?

This section only applies if a network card is to be configured. If you do not need to configure a network interface you can skip on to Making the CLFS System Bootable.

There are two different ways you can proceed from this point to configure your network. Dynamic will allow you to take advantage of a DHCP server to get all your configuration information. Static you become responsible for setting up your options.

To configure a Static Interface, Follow Section 12.5, “Static Networking Configuration”.

To configure a DHCP Interface, Follow Section 12.6, “DHCPCD-6.1.0”.
