Description Harald Hoyer 2005-11-21 06:56:05 EST
remove the sysctl in rc.sysinit which sets hotplug
Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2005-11-21 06:57:20 EST
and also not in /etc/init.d/network
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2005-11-21 12:19:34 EST

How do you temporarily turn off uevent handling in udev, then? Kill it? :)
Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2005-11-21 12:36:43 EST
since udevd uses netlink, udevsend would be overkill... also please move
udev-075-4 from fc5-head to fc5
Comment 4 Harald Hoyer 2005-11-21 12:38:06 EST
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
Comment 5 Harald Hoyer 2005-11-21 12:38:44 EST
why do you want to turn off uevent handling?
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2005-11-21 12:47:04 EST
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.
Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2006-01-06 15:04:36 EST
This is fixed in current, IIRC.
