Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 154739
Network manager startup should come up before other network services...
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:04 EST
Description of problem:
I have a working NetworkManager that automatically connects to my wireless
network when I log in. However, I get failures during startup because routerd
and ntpd fail because the network isn't up yet. I'm sure other network services
would fail also.
These services should start after NetworkManager brings up the current connection.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup fedora to let network manager start connections, so all interfaces are
disabled on boot
setting network time, ntpd, and starting router discovery failssssss because the
network is not up yet.
These services should be started after network manager brings the connection up.
yep... this isn't going to get fixed until FC5 when we get better initscripts.
Things dealing with networking right now are quite dumb because we have to
account for network mounted /usr directories, and NetworkManager resides on /usr
(as does hal, dbus, and glib).
