 +If you have anything that annoys you in Slackware, feel free to add that to this page. I will try to answer, and perhaps provide a fix for obvious bugs. --- Eric 
 +Thanks for providing extremely useful pages to all Slackware users! 
 +One minor annoyance: 
 +**Trouble with rc.inet1 <int&gt;_restart stop** 
 +In a system with 2 network cards (let's say one wired, one wireless) and only one card is plugged/active, when shutting down the system, it tries to deactivate the interface which is already down and doesn't have an IP addressNo big deal, but wastes a second, prints an error message, and tries to send for an inactive interface 
 +More importantly - trying to get a new IP address doesn't work - running rc.inet1 ath0_restart doesn't properly release the IP address so that it's impossible to get a new address on the interface. Same problem happens with rc.inet1 ath0_down&amp;&amp;sleep 5&&rc.inet1 ath0_start 
 +Thanks much! (-Y1) 
 +> Hi Yalla! Your problem might be related to tone from Ismael, and fixed with the addition of <code>ifconfig ath0</code&gt; 
 +> I'll see that I update my scripts sometime soonSorry that my replya took so long... never suspected anyone would actually **use** these discussion pages!

 +**- Related comment (suggestion):** 
 +I've been thinking that maybe Slack's rc.inet1 should also unset the IP address when it brings it down. 
 +Something like: 
 +ifconfig ethN 
 +ifconfig ethN down 
 +IMHO it should do it in both cases, when there's DHCP assigned address and when it is statically assigned. 
 +I've seen that my RaLink 2500 wireless card gets confused when it is brought(sp?) down but the IP isn't removed (If I run ifconfig -a, then the IP is still being shown!). It get's its IP from DHCP, and the DHCP gets sucesfully killed, but out of sudden the card comes up again, adding a fix like the one above to rc.inet1 seems to solve this. 
 +Maybe you could add that to your enhaced rc.inet1, Eric. And hopefully it will get into Slack 11 :) 
 +--- Ismael C. 
 +(//ifconfig ethN ) I had already proposed to add this to rc.inet1 but Pat voted it down :-( Still, I can just add it back to my own version of the rc.inet1, and maybe Pat will be convinced of it's use when more people bring this to his attention <hint>
