Does anybody know of a workaround for this?My best guess is indeed also a DNS lookup which goes into nothingness ;-)
When I'm not connected to my ethernet network, it takes an extra 90 seconds to boot my FreeBSD laptop, as it hangs on this boot message before timing out:
"Doing initial network setup: hostname"
I'm guessing it has something to do with DNS lookup and can't reach the
server(s), but I'm not sure.
You should be able to avoid the DNS query if you have the hostname it is trying to lookup (such as your FQDN) in your /etc/hosts file.
HTH & HAND,
Simple guidelines to happiness:
Work like you don't need the money,
love like your heart has never been broken and dance like no one can see you.
