Why does the 2.4 kernel log messages out of order?

Why does the 2.4 kernel log messages out of order?

Post by Jordan Russel » Mon, 12 Nov 2001 08:15:35



I've noticed that when the 2.4 kernel is used under Red Hat 7.1/7.2, kernel
messages in /var/log/messages are logged in a strange order. Example:

Nov 10 15:14:47 localhost rpc.statd[578]: Version 0.3.1 Starting
Nov 10 15:14:47 localhost kernel: md: autorun ...
Nov 10 15:14:14 localhost rc.sysinit: Mounting proc filesystem:  succeeded
Nov 10 15:14:47 localhost kernel: md: ... autorun DONE.
Nov 10 15:14:14 localhost rc.sysinit: Unmounting initrd:  succeeded
Nov 10 15:14:47 localhost kernel: NET4: Linux TCP/IP 1.0 for NET4.0
Nov 10 15:14:14 localhost sysctl: net.ipv4.ip_forward = 0

Notice the times of the log entries...

Why is this happening? Is there something I can do to fix it?

Thanks.

1. 2.4 kernel PCMCIA and IP kernel level autoconf ordering

I'm trying to boot a laptop with root fs over NFS.  We have a system that
works well for desktop systems, but I'd also like for it to work with
pcmcia ethernet card.  So I'm using a 2.4.9-ac8 kernel, with the necessary
PCMCIA stuff built into the kernel as well as the DHCP and BOOTP support
under kernel(CONFIG_IP_PNP).

The problem is that the kernel tries the DHCP stuff first, loading the
PCMCIA stuff second, one of two steps after the DHCP step.  And since
there's no ethernet detected at the time to send out the DHCP request, it
fails.

Is there any way to change the loading order around so that it would load
the PCMCIA stuff first, then the DHCP stuff?
