Re: Delaying bridge creation

You can do this in /etc/pcmcia/network script's
'start' clause. You can either create and read a .conf
file of your own wherein a 'bridge_wlan=YES' flag is
set (or insert a new flag in network.opts), then do
all the necessary bridging stuff based on the flag
value. Or you can call a separate script that will do
all the bridging stuff. On my case, I did the latter.
I actually removed ALL original lines within the
'start' clause, and called upon another script where
all my network interfaces (wired and wireless) are
configured (raised/bridged/shutdown). Hence, the
effect is that when a wireless card is popped in/out,
all my network settings including
firewalling/routing/etc automatically adjusts.
