The one thing I do like about _netdev, is that if it works is a simple workaround that can be documented for when more complicated detection schemes fail. Rather than trying to keep a list of all known network filesystem and block protocols up to date. > Not sure, maybe it's possible to detect this by scsi info in /sys. I took a look at what lsscsi is doing to guess at transport type. iSCSI is kind of ugly, FCoE is really ugly, and for both of those there exists a variety of drivers with varying levels of dependence on the networking layer. It would be nice to work on getting some of the more common works working automatically, but _netdev seems like a nice failsafe. I'm sending an RFC patchset with a start at addressing this. - Chris _______________________________________________ systemd-devel mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/systemd-devel
