That is the summary:
At the stage of /etc/rc.local:
1) Network modules and usb-net modules are typically
To get that running there are two options:
- to do insmod for mii, network, dm9601(e.g.)
- to sleep for a few seconds.
(after sleeping a proper usb-net module is started
-- that seemingly means the udev works good in this way)
2) Ethernet interface is not brought up.
(not surprising as modules may not run by that time)
So I brought it up through ifup.
3) For (2) to be successful I had also to
provide proper content of the
(this file is not generated automatically as /lib/udev/write_net_rules is not present).
Maybe that is sufficient just to add write_net_rules
to provide creating the 70-persistent-net.rules (I did not check that).
My feeling about all this is that at the system start the
network interface fails to be brought up as
- modules are not inserted (by that time)
- no net rules file is present
(I understand that there is an attempt to bring the eth0 up as
configured in the /etc/init/network-interface.conf)
