remove the sysctl in rc.sysinit which sets hotplug
and also not in /etc/init.d/network
How do you temporarily turn off uevent handling in udev, then? Kill it? :)
since udevd uses netlink, udevsend would be overkill... also please move
udev-075-4 from fc5-head to fc5
in udev-075-4 I call sysctl for older kernels, which do not use uevent
yes, kill udevd... it connects through netlink to the kernel
why do you want to turn off uevent handling?
When /etc/init.d/network, you generally want to ignore any hotplug/uevent events
for network devices, as it's expected that things will be added/removed then.
Of course, this can be fixed in net.agent too.
This is fixed in current, IIRC.
