How do I bring interface up?

When booting, after "Load Modules", the following message appear:
How do I bring interface up on this distro
add event not handled

Wild guess: Hotplug?

I was going to answer exactly the same :-) Check this http://linux-hotplug.sourceforge.net/?selected=hotplug

Re: How do I bring interface up?

Caused by the new hotplug version with kernel 2.6.x. I am not running hotplug at boot, only used for hwd, and now its trying to active.... that's not fair.

Well, if the kernel has hotplug support it will call /sbin/hotplug at every hotplug event, so you don't have much choice it seems. wink

The hotplug script at boot is only for coldplugging.

Re: How do I bring interface up?

I have the same "How do I bring interfaces up ..." message, but I did not quite understand from this discussion what to do ... recompile the kernel? Reconfigure hotplug? Some hint will be appreciated!

Thanx,
Jan

Re: How do I bring interface up?

Its not yet solved. There must be a place to stop kernel to activate the hotplug "without re-compiling the kernel".
The matter is in the new version of hotmail. The earlier version was fine. When I get time I will check on it.

Re: How do I bring interface up?

Hotmail? *cough*

Anyway, if you don't want to use hotplug, but only have it installed, then add something like "echo /bin/true > /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug" to your rc.local.

If you want to get rid of the message, but stil use hotplug, then edit /etc/hotplug/net.agent (That's the hotplug package maker's responsibility though).
