Hi,

since I updated my system, my bridge doesn't startup at boot. I have to start it manually and all process that need this interface.

Code:

modules=( "iproute2" )

...
eth0 settings
...

config_eth1=( "null" )
config_tap0=( "null" )

config_br0=( "192.168.178.51/24 brd 192.168.178.255" )
bridge_br0="eth1 tap0"

depend_br0() {
              need net.eth1 net.tap0
}


At boottime I see this:

Code:
...
Starting eth1
    Bringing up eth1
Starting tap0
    Bringing up tap0
Starting br0
    Creating bridge br0 ...
    Adding ports to br0
        network interface tap0 does not exist
        Please verify hardware or kernel module (driver)
Starting eth0
...


After booting, I can start br0 manually without any errors. Does tap0 need a few seconds to start so that the br0 init scripts can't find tap0?

I'm using the 2.6.17-gentoo-r4 kernel and just updated to sys-apps/baselayout-1.12.4-r6.

Any ideas what I can do?

I've tried to start the services manually.

test1
net.eth1 ok
net.tap0 ok
net.br0 error (tap0 not found?)

then I tried this

test2
net.eth1 ok
net.tap0 ok
openvpn ok (runs on tap0)
net.br0 ok

It seems that the net.br0 init scripts can only find the tap0 device if there is openvpn running on it.
Then I tried to add openvpn in the depend line of net.br0.

Code:
depend_br0() {
              need net.eth1 net.tap0 openvpn
}


After reboot I got the same error. I don't know how to fix this. My problems started with my last baselayout update.
