------- Comment #36 from dieter.jurzitza@xxxxxxxxxxx 2007-02-05 14:02 MST -------
Tonight I looked a little deeper:
I patched udev to printout what it is doing. This relates to udev_device.c and
So I know I can wait directly where it ought to be of interest. What I find:

Import_program: /lib/udev/ ra1
Sleeping for two seconds ...
Import_program: /lib/udev/rename_netiface ra1 NOMAC_HACK_APPLIED=no

so, though I sleep between saying "hey, load your firmware" and calling
rename_netiface nothing happens (I inserted a sleep(2) there).

Hard to track this further without any documentation. Nevertheless, however
long I wait, rename_netiface is always called with one devicename only given
the firmware loading needs to be triggered as shown above.

Maybe someone can put me on the track where within udev sources to look to
exactly find the point where the decision is made to use a single devicename

Take care
