Another nb question: network won't start at boot

I am running Arch 0.5 in a notebook with a 3c574 pmcia card (3com). I've set everything up (gateway, dns, etc) and installed cardmgr... when i load it and type "/etc/rc.d/network start" everything works fine.. the problem is that the network is not loading at boot, i have to start it manually every time the system is restarted (already tried adding network start to rc.local). The DAEMON array is like that:

DAEMON=(pcmcia network crond inetd)

Can i get it work by itself?   wink

Ps: sorry about any gramatical errors, english is not my primary language

Re: Another nb question: network won't start at boot

sometimes pcmcia needs some time to start (at least on my machine) ... try to put something inbetween pcmcia and network --- like:

DAEMON=(pcmcia crond [maybe something else here] network inetd)

this gives the pcmcia the time to initialize correctly


The impossible missions are the only ones which succeed.

Re: Another nb question: network won't start at boot

i've tried a workaround like that... made a rc script with "/etc/rc.d/network start" and added it before "network" in the daemons array... it worked, but i still get the loading errors. Look at the last lines of my boot sequence (i had to write it by hand heheh):

[ Starting PCMCIA Services                      BUSY ]
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 down
cardmgr[111]: watching 2 sockets
                                                              DONE ]
[ Starting Network                                   BUSY ]
SIOCSIFADDR: No such device
eth0: unknown interface: No such device
SIOCSIFNETMASK: No such device
SIOCSIFBRDADDR: Cannot assign requested address
                                                           FAILED ]
[ Starting Network                                 DONE ]
[ Starting Cron Daemon                         DONE ]
[ Starting inetd                                      DONE ]

DAEMON=(pcmcia crond [maybe something else here] network inetd)

i'll try that too hehe, thanks

Re: Another nb question: network won't start at boot

This is actually a bug. Bug #61 in fact.  I submitted it quite a while ago.  Here's the description:

When a wireless pcmcia card is inserted, the network is unable to be fully started due to path errors in the /etc/pcmcia/network script. the script looks for dhcpcd in /sbin but in reality the pacman package installs the dhcpcd binaries into /usr/sbin.

In other words, you should be able to fix all this by modifying the pcmcia network script. HTH
