Package: isc-dhcp-client
Version: 4.3.1-5
Severity: important


We have some desktop running debian Jessie which lost the network every
few days. At that time we got the following messages in syslog:

Dec  9 20:07:57 chilopoda NetworkManager[605]: <info> (eth0): DHCPv4 client pid 936 exited with status -1
Dec  9 20:07:57 chilopoda NetworkManager[605]: <warn> DHCP client died abnormally

We have to restart manually dhclient to get the network back.

Sincerely yours,
