Description Marius Andreiana 2007-02-22 10:33:59 UTC
On a laptop I have defined a PPPoe connect (xDSL). When booting in a place where
this isn't available it tries to connect for ~35 seconds before giving up with
error. When it connects it's in less than 5 seconds usually.

Please lower the timeout for giving up. I realize though that for bad
connections the 35 seconds might be good. If you believe this is a good default,
how could I lower it manually in order to boot faster in all places?

you can change CONNECT_TIMEOUT in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp0
