Some of my HP server have got NC7700 network cards...and I have got a big issue with them..
Indeed, I launch an autoyast install, having given all the parameter (hostname, netmask, ip etc..) yast tries to configured my network card one after the other and fails to mout the depot with all of them..
Actually the NC7700 need about 20 sec to initialize the network communication correctly... but autoyast / linuxrc only waits half a second one it has config a card before trying to mount the depot....
--> Is there a smart way for me to force a longer "sleep" between the config and the mount ?
--> I have identified in the linuxrc source in net.c a line I could modify to force a longer sleep.. but I perform the makefile.. the linuxrc generated does not allow an autoyast install.. any help on that topic?
--> Or would you have a solution for reducing the initialization delay of my network cards?
Best regards, Damien.
