Subject: [gentoo-laptop] Abort network startup when cable not connected
Date: Tue, 17 May 2005 22:12:11

This is probably an easy one. 
My laptop has two network connections: hardwired (default) and
wireless(starts manually).  Both are working fine.  However, when I
boot up my laptop without the NIC cable connected it takes a very long
time to boot.  This is because the net.eth0 script keeps trying to
start networking.  I have an older laptop with SuSe 9.2 and it does
not have this problem.

How can I configure the startup script so that networking will not be
started if the cable is not connected?
