I recommend changing the 'start' part of /etc/pcmcia/network according to:

'start')
        if [ -f /var/lock/subsys/network ]
        then
                 /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup ifcfg-${device} boot
        fi

This will only start a network card if it should be started at boot
(ONBOOT=yes) time and if networking is alreday up.

Comment 2 David Hinds 2000-01-10 20:48:59 UTC
I think this would be a bad fix unless you actually want to redefine the meaning
of "ONBOOT" to mean "autoconfigure this device at any time, boot or otherwise".
The suggested fix also prevents a hot-inserted card from being configured, which
may be a useful thing, but is not what "ONBOOT" would imply.

Comment 3 jaffe 2000-02-06 19:40:59 UTC
Well, I think "WONTFIX" is a bit of a copout.

One possibility would be to add a flag like ONBOOT, say "ONINSERTION" with the
obvious behavior.
