Description Rex Dieter 2008-04-02 12:09:12 EDT
Using NetworkManger, per F-9 default. On boot, I see: Starting postfix: failed /var/log/maillog contains postfix/sendmail[...]: fatal: could not find any active network interfaces Which is probably true, since it tries to start before NetworkManager.
Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2008-04-02 12:37:27 EDT
Is there no local network interface?
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2008-04-02 12:41:15 EDT
Apparently not until NetworkManager starts.
Comment 3 Thomas Woerner 2008-04-02 12:53:55 EDT
Then this is a NetworkManager bug. You can not start any network service without at least local network. Assigning to NetworkManager.
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2008-04-02 13:05:28 EDT
fair nuf. Not that you mention it, this may be self-inflicted, since this is an updated box from early in the F9 dev cycle, I manually chkconfig network off chkconfig NetworkMananager on awhile back. Should network service be enabled or disabled? (will try it enabled to see what happens).
Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2008-04-02 13:14:21 EDT
confirmed, with both 'network' and 'NetworkManager' services running, things work as expected/advertised. I'll close this. Move along, nothing to see here.
Comment 6 Warren Togami 2008-04-02 13:17:41 EDT
Things are supposed to work with NetworkManager and without network. Reopening.
Comment 7 Dan Williams 2008-04-02 21:32:56 EDT
was talking with notting about this today; there are two circular deps if we'd try to start NM earlier. The first is that dbus depends on syslog, but syslog depends on network. bascially sysvinit and lsb suck. not much we can do here until we get a better init system.
Comment 8 Bill Nottingham 2008-04-03 11:13:58 EDT
We could always bring up loopback somewhere else. That actually fits the broken LSB definition of 'network'....
Comment 9 Colin Walters 2008-04-03 15:51:23 EDT
Also could have a smarter syslog that queues up messages until the network is available.
Comment 11 Rex Dieter 2008-04-06 12:44:22 EDT
Seems recent fixes (in initscripts) to address bug #439242 has also resolved this for me (postfix starts now anyway).
Comment 12 Bill Nottingham 2008-04-07 12:06:17 EDT
That's strange; it should be mostly unrelated.
Comment 13 Rex Dieter 2008-04-08 10:12:03 EDT
nevermind. rechecked, and my comment #11 is incorrect. still a problem alright.
Comment 14 Rex Dieter 2008-04-08 20:51:25 EDT
initscripts-8.69-1 confirmed mm, mm, good.
