networked drives and shutdown/startup order--need help altering
Hi there everyone,
I'm having an issue with Ubuntu. To be honest, this problem has always existed, it's nothing new. Nobody seems willing to squash the bug though.
With networked shares, shutdown is stalled by the fact that the OS shuts down the network interface, then attempts to unmount the networked drives. This causes stalls in the shutdown that can last minutes. I've managed to resolve the issue with this post.
However, I'm still having a problem on startup. The network isn't alive when it tries to mount my shares and the mount fails. If I manually mount the drives through a terminal after startup, it works fine. Now here's the oddity. If I reboot(and not cold start), the drives do mount properly, leading me to believe that reboot uses a different process order than startup. Is this true?
How might I get my startup to follow reboot's lead, where network is brought up prior to the drives being mounted?
