can't install dhcp

Asked by David Hrivnak on 2009-04-20

Trying to install DHCP using apt-get install dhcp, get "Package dhcp is not available, but it is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source. E: package dhcp has no installation candidate"

So if you want to install the cliet use:

sudo apt-get install dhcp3

If you want to install the server and clients use:

sudo apt-get install dhcp3-common

I believe there is also:

sudo apt-get install dhcp3-ldap

For LDAP support.

I hope this helps.

There is the complete name of the package.

For future reference you can always check:
http://packages.ubuntu.com/ on the web

Or directly using synaptic from the command line.

Can you help with this problem?
