I have RH 6.1 running on a Pentium Pro 180, with a 3Com Etherlink XL NIC.
Everything is OK except when shutting down it freezes on "shutting down
interface eth0", even though no problems are reported on startup when
I noticed that the PCMCIA service is started after eth0, and since this is a
desktop PC (no PCMCIA) I thought this might cause the problem. When I
checked in etc/sysconfig/pcmcia the PCMCIA parameter is "NO".
Therefore, my questions:
- what could be causing the freeze when "shutting down interface eth0" ?
- could it be the PCMCIA service starting after eth0 ?
- if so, why is the PCMCIA service begin started even if PCMCIA=NO in
etc/sysconfig/pcmcia ? How can I disable the PCMCIA service ?
