Description of problem:
I have both eht0 (ethernet) and wlan0 (wireless) interfaces 'activate
When I remove the my wireless card (PCMCIA/linksys) from the slot and
reboot - the waiting time to get into system is around 15 minutes (to
pass wlan0 ativation).
My wlan0 is with ndiswrapper 1.0 and drivers for linksys (rtl8180)
Machine is DELL laptop Inspiration 5100.
When my other network is not pressent (when I do not have connection
throu eth1) it tooks 3-4 minutes to <fail>.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install wireless card with ndiswrapper - linksys
2.Setup the activation to be at boot time
3.shut down the machine
4.remove the card from the pcmcia slot
5.start the machine
6.see the wlan0 activation
Actual Results: 15 minutes to find out that the wlan0 can't be activated.
Expected Results: to take 1-2 minutes like in eth1
Which specific operations take longer?
Fixed in the current raw branch.
It is fine now.
