Description of problem:

I have set LINKDELAY=20 in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 as described in /usr/share/doc/initscripts-9.03.23/sysconfig.txt but it does not seem to be respected anymore.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2011-08-26 15:19:45 UTC
In what way is it not respected? Are you using the network script or NetworkManager?

Comment 2 Marcus Moeller 2011-08-26 18:39:57 UTC
I am using classic network scripts (not nm). There is simply no delay between link setup and dhcp ip retreaval.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2011-08-26 21:28:38 UTC
LINKDELAY for dhcp is the length of time it will wait for a link to show up - if it shows up, it will exit out sooner. That behavior has not changed.

Ok, then I just got it wrong. Sorry for the noice.
