Description Cameron Simpson 2000-05-21 02:22:48 UTC
On many laptops the ethernet is attached to a PCMCIA card.
The RedHat 6.2 startup tries to initialise the ethernet before starting
the card services, and fails if eth0 is on the PCMCIA card.

I encountered this on an IBM Thinkpad. It was sufficient to move the PCMCIA
startup to before the ethernet startup. Since PCMCIA doesn't depend on
much this should be pretty safe to do across the board.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-05-31 22:36:54 UTC
This shouldn''t be a problem, as PCMCIA should start
up the network card itself; are you saying it doesn''t?

Comment 2 Tomasz Kepczynski 2000-07-26 18:55:53 UTC
Well, it usually is not a problem with device initialization. But PCMCIA is
after YP, NFS, NFSFS and so on. This causes problems if laptop is usually
to a network and depends on these services. Shouldn't PCMCIA statrup be moved
so it initialises befor network services are started?
