Description Raphael Jacquot 2002-12-24 10:51:01 UTC
Description of problem:
The PCMCIA subsystem is started after the Network subsystem. This is non
practical if the only network card in the system is a pcmcia adapter.
Starting the two subsystems in that order poses a number of problems such as
delaying network interface initialization (which is a minor delay) to blocking
the machine several dozens of seconds (minutes ?) when using PPPOE to connect
for instance to a DSL provider, as the PPP process is trying to hook onto the
ethernet adapter which hasn't been started yet.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
0. use a pcmcia network adapter
1. set up a DSL provider
2. boot the machine
3. hang when trying to launch PPPOE while the ethernet adapter is not even loaded
Actual results:
hangs the boot process for a while until if finally times out, not finding a

Expected results:
should start the pcmcia so that the adapter is loaded, then start the network,
and all would be well
