but the gateway flags are still UGS instead of UGSc under netstat -r
so I tried to reboot but the same thing happened. So I tried to have the
interface configure automatically at boot, but it won't ping external hosts
but it resolves the hostnames.
Something really strange something happened on this boot:
It hung on
Configuring syscons: keymap keyrate blanktime
for about a minute, but this only happened after I tried to automatically
enable dhcp on an interface at boot. So I just tried taking it out the
ifconfig_rl0="DHCP" line again and rebooted,
and it did not hang (this was also when I had enabled sshd_enable, so it two
changes to rc.conf). I realised why it doesn't start sshd;
sshd_enable="YES" wasn't in the rc.conf, I presume this is the new default
behaviour? If one puts this back in, it generates the keypair, so I was
probably just being stupid.
But now I just took it out, and the machine hangs on:
for about 2 minutes then carries on
OK, I understand now. If I put in the ifconfig_rl0="DHCP" the machine pauses
for about 1-2mins at the point just beyond Configuring syscons: keymap
keyrate blanktime, which is also the same place as sshd. So now I suspect
that this isn't a hang but DHCP doing its job?
