I cant help you with the error, but you dont need any more start/stop
flags then what you got.
Probably cant find another DHCP server, or the eth0 interface doesnt exist
usually a simple `dhcpcd eth0` starts up the eth0 interface. [if you want
to experiment with it outside of the bootscripts]. -d looks like debug
info, so you can include that as well.
