Bootup docked/undocked issue
I have been trying to set up my Dell Latitude CPi laptop with RedHat 8.0. It works great but there is something that is just bugging me and I *KNOW* that there is a way to fix it, I just don't know what it is at the moment. Here's the situation:
when I boot undocked, I have a pcmcia ethernet/modem card that gets loaded by cardmgr. It correctly determines the network and attaches itself to eth0 since it's the only network device. when I boot docked, I still have the pcmcia card that's not connected now, cause I also have another NIC in the docking station that is physically connected to the net. When I get to the login, something is hosed cause I don't have network connection established... ifconfig show that eth1 (the pcmcia card) is active but not eth0... simply running /etc/init.d/network restart solves the issue, but I don't want to have to restart the network every time I boot docked!
BTW, I disabled the pcmcia startup cause I thought that was the problem but it has nothing to do with it. :(
Any help is greatly appreciated...
