Netenv is a tool for simplifying the localisation of Linux laptops. When booting the laptop netenv provides a simple interface from which one can choose the current network environment. On the first boot in a new environment, netenv prompts for the basic data for later reuse.
Release Notes: If configured, arping is used on a well known IP address in the default environment. If it gets a reply, the prorgram no longer stops in the chooser box. mii-tool is run for eth0 to get the status of the link. dhcpcd is run for 3 seconds while broadcasting DHCP_DISCOVER, and the results are shown in the chooser box.
Release Notes: A DHCP-related bug was fixed.
Release Notes: The keyword DHCP may be used for new environments. The documentation has been rewritten. The variables BOOTPROTO and STARTMODE are introduced for ifup. Examples have been adopted to current distributions using ifup. An example netenv_setup_debian_example is provided for Debian non-PCMCIA users.
