Description Jack Neely 2003-12-17 20:19:24 UTC
Description of problem:
Using a machine with a PCMCIA network card the network is init'd by
the PCMCIA scripts.  However, unlike the normal network init the
PCMCIA scripts do not wait for the card to get a DHCP and/or properly
come up.  This can cause problems with other init scripts that run
shortly after PCMCIA that neet to access the network.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Most likely exists in Fedora Core as well.

How reproducible:
I can reproduce it with my init script that starts OpenAFS which has a
check to make sure that there are ethernet cards up and with valid IP
addresses.  These openafs RPMS can be found on

Expected results:
I would expect the PCMCIA stuff to wait for ethernet cards to properly
init as does the normal network init scripts.
