http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hello all, I'm running Slackware-13.1 on my laptop. Connection to my network is via wlan0, a cable in most cases not pluged in. When starting the system the first attempt to configure the network is via eth0, which ends with dhcpcd timing out since there is no cable pluged in. Afterwards wlan0 is set up properly. I have installed ifplugd, which is a daemon who connects to ethernet only if a cable is connected. With Gentoo this works out of the box. With Slackware ifplugd is started after rc.inet1 (probably). So the the system still tries to connect via ethernet before connecting to the wire (HowTos)
