Description Jiri Popelka 2012-04-10 10:06:56 EDT
When I run firewalld and NetworkManager (NM) with debug messages on I see that during boot firewalld begins to start (several seconds) after NM. That is bad - NM needs to inform firewalld when making network interfaces up otherwise they will be in no zone until firewalld starts.

I suggest these changes in firewalld.service:

1) Before=NetworkManager.service
- selfexplaining, needed to start firewalld before NM
2) Type=dbus
- to tell systemd when firewalld is ready
- systems.service(5) says:
Behaviour of dbus is similar to simple, however it is expected that the daemon acquires a name on the D-Bus bus, as configured by BusName=. systemd will proceed starting follow-up units after the D-Bus bus name has been acquired. Service units with this option configured implicitly gain dependencies on the dbus.socket unit.
3) remove After=dbus.target
- I think the 'Type=dbus' does the same.

Note: I took me a plenty of time to get this solution because I had been trying either (1) or (2) but not both of them together :-(
