Hello, I'm wondering if anybody knows a technique for this problem:
I have a laptop that I frequently boot when it is not plugged into an ethernet network. In these circumstances, I would like to add some logic during boot time that looks at at the status of my fxp0 interface. If "status: no carrier" is true, then I do not want dhclient to run. I want the boot process to bypass DHCP so that it will boot faster, or so that I don't have to hit "CTRL-C" after the hostname is set, and so that I can easily run my wireless setup script or ppp manually if I choose to connect to a network at all. But I still need to be able to detect an active link state on fxp0 and lease a DHCP address automatically for when I'm in the office and plugged in. Is there a way to accomplish this?
