This is too weird. :)
So, I have an embedded box with a PCMCIA wireless in it.
If I put
ifconfig wi0 10.0.0.1 nwid foo mediaopt ibss
in /etc/rc.local, the machine crashes.
If I surround it with 'sleep 10' on both sides... the machine crashes.
But not during either sleep; it waits until "updating motd".
If I wait until the system is booted, *then* do this, everything's fine.
The exact point of the crash seems to vary; it looks like a timing or
Anyone else seen anything like this?
