It is not the question of dependencies. You have single service
that takes this time to start.

The first obvious question - are you using ifup or


OK, then you can simply test what happens if you manually start

/etc/init.d/network stop
/etc/init.d/network start

Does it take the same time?

Yep, perhaps a second longer as well.

OK. Check "journalctl -u network.service". It gives you output of
scripts run when networks starts with time stamps. This could
provide enough hints what step takes the most time.

If not, you can stick "set -x" on top of /etc/init.d/network and
look where it stalls.

Here is the output of 'journalctl':

The timeout is occurring because your DHCP client is looking for an
IPv6 dhcp server and can't find one. This can also cause slow DNS
response times because IP6 names are searched for before IP4 names.

If you're not using IPv6 locally, disable it in network settings (via
YaST) and reboot.

Or just change the network config to only use dhcpv4. No reboot
necessary, except to verify :-)
