Is there a way to start services in the background during boot up? - westcoaster - 03-08-2013 01:59 AM

Hi,
Sometimes I boot up my computer with no Network Interface Card inserted in the slot and, of course, there is a long delay (2 minutes) while nothing happens in bringing up the network. It's not a biggie, but I'm curious if there is already exists an easy way to start this in the background?

Hi ... eliminating this network service delay is already in the TODO list :] I can always try to change my priorities according to wishes of users active on this forum ... and that's you right now. So ... give me some time to think and fix that ...

Please, update delitools to 0.8.1.16-1 and repeat the network configuration ...
That should regenerate your rc script to timeout in 10 seconds instead of 2 minutes ...

... and of course ... let me know about the result

Hi Tavvva,
Thanks for doing that--I asked because I wasn't sure if you had already implemented a fix Big Grin

I tried it on two setups and it works fine. If I boot without a network card inserted I can't even tell there is any timeout at all. When I later insert a network card, I can easily connect by manually bringing up the interface, etc.

yup ... simply do:
service net start


... moving this to RESOLVED

Of course....that's definitely more elegant! Tongue
